Author's note:

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!
