Also known as "Chinese Chess", the game probably has a common
and similar mechanics. Some of the
differences are that pieces travel on the line intersections
rather than on the squares and the cannon pieces which are required
to leap over others. Overall appears to have less depth than Chess.

Magazine wargame about German airships bombing England during World War I.
Very interesting, offbeat topic is unfortunately seriously marred by
rather poor rules writing and insufficient development as many rules "bugs"
leave the game only barely playable. A topic also considered by
Luftschiff (airship), a game not considered here but more information
is available at the
Sierra Madre Games
[Balloon Aviation Games]
