Description Edit | History

Pocket Magnetic Chinese Chess / 磁力 中國象棋 has English information on three sides of its box, and Chinese information on the other three. The game board is a plastic clamshell that contains all the pieces (after initial liberation from the sprues). The board itself is printed on the laminated surface that covers the steel sheet to which the magnets can stick. The lamination depicts a white-lined board on realistic-looking wood grain. The white lines are in the traditional configuration, with an outer boundary, and the starting vertices marked with emphasized corners. The pieces themselves are plastic, with small, but appropriately-powered magnets in the bottom; their tops have the traditional Chinese characters and a bordering circle, both raised and painted either red or green, depending on the team.

It is U.K. Design Reg. No. 1055358
