Chess is more of a positional game than Xiangqi (Chinese chess).

Subject: Chess variants and Chinese Chess (Xiangqi)
Hi Chess folks,
as BrainKing provides the opportunity to test 37 chess variants, many of you might have done so. You probably developed a passion for some kind of variant other than International Chess. Or the other way: You became frustrated by not knowing the keys to chess variants (like e.g. Chinese Chess) and stick to the more familiar chess now.
Recently, an introduction to Chinese Chess was published which is addressed mainly to Chess players. You may find it helpful. Chess and Xiangqi are compared in more detail than just the way how to move pieces. Especially recommended for beginners.
See yourself:
Introduction to Chinese Chess (XiangQi) for Chess Players
Use the features of BrainKing and play!
I wish you some success and more fun.

beatit2:
The longest game could be 1200 days =3 years and 3 months based on the average game with 40 moves and time control is 30 days a move.
if both players doing the same thing it will be 2400 days. HOW MANY YEARS?

So what gives? Why the sudden appearance and in the top 100 when just a few weeks ago BrainKing wasn't even on the chart? I wish the chess-links site would explain the column headings and maybe write up something.

ketchuplover: Site visits? I looked at their chart, but I cannot figure out what the columns mean. They do not have a legend explaining the column headers, and I'm not very good with abbreviations when I do not know the subject very well.

Or does 109,000 members mean nothing? What criteria do they use for ranking a site for be good for Chess?
