Xiangqi vs Orthodox Chess. Missing description (9x9, Cells: 77) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The Mao is worth two pawns, the Elephant worth about one ( remember, Alfil is one and a half, and the elephant can' t cross the river and can't jump, so), the Guards maybe one and a quarter ( the ferz is one and a half, and the Guard is confined), the Cannon worth maybe four, and each pawn probably a quarter. So (2+1+1.25+4+5)x2+(0.75x5)=26.5+3.75= 30.25. But (5+3+3+9)x2+8=48!!  So Xiangqi loses easily. Maybe yang qi against chess?

The Nutty Knights are weak. The fibnif is exactly 3. The charging rook is maybe slightly weaker than rook, but it's really a quantum of advantage. The Charging Knight is probably stronger, but again by a quantum of advantage. So that leaves just the Colonel. The rook part is 3.75 the knight part is 1.5 the king part is 2. 3.75+1.5+2=7.25. The Colonel is just too weak. What about fsRfhNAK? The other two teams? :)
