Coffee Chinese Chess
Written by Pham Hong Nguyen, Coffee Chinese Chess is a customizable freeware Java applet for playing Chinese Chess. It is also good for displaying games and practicing with an openingbook. At his own website for this applet, he gives permission for others to include it on their own websites. Since the graphics can be customized, I have customized it for use with various graphics I have designed for Chinese Chess. Below the applet, you can select different piece sets. Some will automatically use different boards than the one shown below. This applet will let you play against a computer program. If you would like to play against other people by correspondence, using the same graphics available here, you can use Game Courier, which will let you play Chinese Chess and many more Chess variants online.
The links below will change the graphics. Be warned that they will also reset the game. So don't use them during an ongoing game you want to continue.
