I found a folding Go board at a Goodwill store. Anyone know what's on the back?



A Shogi variant that uses an 8x9 board?

Also, any translation of the Korean on the box would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Rex

I think it's rather Korean chess, Changgi

Same board etc but slightly different rules.

I'm curious, I was going to say Xiangqi(Chinese Chess), so what is the differences that you see in the picture that point to the Korean one?
(besides the korean characters, I mean. I''m assuming there's more than that to indicate it)

Traditional games that have survived the test of time and ancient games that have not are a part of our heritage.

m'n - the Egyptian hieroglyph for board game, also signifying "stability" and used phonetically as in the last syllable of "Tutankhamun"

A Xiangqi (Chinese Chess) board has a river across the middle of the board (a row without lines dividing it) while a Changgi (Korean Chess) board does not.

Thanks! I missed that.

So as long as there are some knowledgeable folks identifying this game, can anyone tell me what this game is on the back of my Go board?



Thanks in advance!

This is Xiang Qi, Chinese chess, unlike the image at the start of the thread.

Wider spacing and no river.

Are the pieces the same sans the language printed on them?

Chinese and Korean Chess have the same pieces, but most of the pieces move in slightly different ways.
Korean Chess tends to play as a longer game than Chinese Chess.

Chinese Elephant Piece and the River
Among the many differences in the moves, the Korean elephant moves in the most obviously different way. The Chinese elephant just moves two diagonal points in a straight line. The Chinese elephant may not cross the centre of the board. Hence the Chinese board has the river. A piece blocking the first point, blocks the whole move.

Korean Elephant Piece and No River
In Korean chess, the elephant moves one point orthogonally, followed by moving two points in a diagonal straight line. A piece occupying any intermediate point blocks the move. Also, the rules do not restrict the movement of the Korean elephant to only one side of the board. Hence, the Korean board has no need for a river.

Chinese Writing on the Counters
While Korean and Chinese chess both have Chinese writing on the counters, in Korean Chess, the writing for one side looks different from the writing on the other side.

Numerous small differences occur in the moves of most of the other pieces as well.
