Back in Taiwan, I ever played Manchurian Chess(º¡¬w´Ñ) with my classmate. 

Manchurian Chess was invented by Manchu people during 17th century.  This powerful and isolated pieces which could move like Rook, Cannon, and Horse is called Banner(ºX). 

Manchu people likened Banner to their army who destroyed Ming Dynasty.
