I play Xiangqi' date=' and the piece names that I find most people recognize are:


Marshal --> General

Military Advisor --> Guard

Domestic Advisor --> Scholar


The cards are good, but they need a theme effect to pull them together. They're a bit boring otherwise. 7/10

[/quote']They are still work in progress,so in due time,I will get them organinsed with a theme.
