Chinese chess, or xianqi, is an extraordinary game in which the endless tactical subtleties are far more important than the eventual outcome. It has a distinguished history. Tamerlane, the brilliant but ferocious Mongol warrior who became the scourge of Asia in the 14th century, was utterly obsessed by it. The military who saw it as a perfect way to try out strategies and tactics that would stand them in good stead on the battlefield have always favored the game.
