Yes , perhaps. It would deserve to be corrected.

I think the 2 x 2 is a typo, and that this game uses a standard Xiangqi board. Perhaps the error was inspired by the fact that on a traditional Xiangqi board the Palace does look like a 2x2 area of squares, with a diagonal cross in it.

I don't understand these rules.

The river and the fortresses are not shown on the diagram.

The fortress is said "(back 2 cells of middle 2 files)". I see 9 files. Which ones are the 2 middle?

The rule says "Wazirs and Ferzes cannot leave the Fortress". But they start on the 3rd rank, out of the Fortress if I well understood. How come they cannot leave it, they are not in it?
