The beginner's guide to

Western chess, shogi (Japanese chess),

shiang chi (Chinese chess) and go (wei chi).

The 4 games given here are highly popular and enjoyable games of strategy and skill for two players; each game has millions of amateur players as well as a few hundred professionals. This book, which is the first single in-depth guide to these games, aims to encourage players to play more than one, and so make these games even more international.

This carefully researched work - based upon professional games and analysis - includes:

- Clear explanation of the rules and fundamental strategy of each game.

- Comparison of overall strategy and tactics in the 3 king-hunting games of chess, shogi and shiang chi, and then with the more territorial game of go.

- Detailed openings guide in each game for more advanced study.

- 16 complete annotated games by the world's top players (some playing a game outside the one specialised in); including Alekhine, Fischer, Karpov, Kasparov, Morphy (chess); Habu, Kimura, Oyama, Sato, Yonenaga (shogi); Hiibner, Hu, Lu, Xie Jun, Zhao (shiang chi); Cho, Go, Iwamoto, Jowa, Senchi, Shusai (go).

Chess, shogi and shiang chi have some similar pieces - kings, rooks, bishops, knights, pawns - and the winning goal is capture of the opponent's king. In the Oriental game of go captives only count towards the winning goal of surrounding greater overall territory.

These 4 great games share some fundamental strategic and tactical ideas. Each game has principles of play which apply to the others; so playing one can help learn and improve play in another. Enjoy playing chess, shogi, shiang chi and go - there is fascination and beauty in all!
