My rating of 'excellent' applies to this program as being a great opponent with which to practice Xianqi. You actually play against a computer opponent in real time (no long waiting for moves). And you can select from several piece sets. It can also be set for Computer vs Computer of Human vs Human (handy if you wanted to play someone in your house (or a friends) but had no board or pieces. It is a nice arena to knock off the cobwebs, if you're out of practice. In regard to a question (in a previous comment) about setting the board up however you want... I do not see a way to do that.
