Xiang Qi
Also known as "Chinese Chess", the game probably has a common ancestor with Chess 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.

Zeppelin
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 website. [summary] [Balloon Aviation Games]
