Dog higher than wolf???
BTW, a jaguar is totally different from a leopard. It is as close to it as
it is to a tiger or a lion.

I wonder why the name of the game in this page is not corrected as stated by many comments. It can be verified. Correct name is Doushouqi.
Shou dou qi is incorrect!

I am currently in the process of creating a widget engine for cross-platform gaming known as the Five Animals Gamerwidget Engine (Five Animals Kung fu, not Five Animals Qi Gong). One of the games I am going to create is based on C S Lewis' Narnia books and a game I saw on this site, known as 'Nemeroth'.

Basically, the game I am going to create will be called 'The War of the Animals: The Thousand Battles' and will star (unremarkably) Humans as commanders for Aslan and Sorcerers as commanders for Nemeroth. The game will involve the same physics as Dou Shou Qi and the same graphics (though not the same graphic nature) of Battlefield 2: Special Forces. I am hoping this game will at least garner as much attention as somehting like Rome: Total War or World of Warcraft.

Wish me luck!

Viktor is right, twice. The Chinese name of the game is Dou Shou Qi meaning
'Game of fighting animals'.
And, true, there is a mistake in the given rules : a trap does not affect
at all a friendly piece. It only affects enemy pieces.

I think your rules are wrong. You say: 'A piece of a player in one of his own trap squares cannot be taken by the opponent.'. It's not true. Nothing changes when you are on your own traps. So, the comment be Ralf `Panther` Gering, What is wrong with Shou Dou Qi?, makes no sense. <P> Btw, the original name is Dou Shou Qi, not Shou Dou Qi. <P>
