Chinese chess freeware

Hat tip for Chinese chess enthusiasts: Qianhong is a free chess program, you install it on your machine and play against the program. I’m in Canada, but my wife just returned from a trip to the homeland and brought me a xiangqi set, which got me to thinking that I hadn’t played in a long time. A quick search found Qianhong, and I’ve been having a blast the last few days instead of working.

It’s fun!

I’m surprised there hasn’t been much talk of Chinese chess on Or maybe any at all? Maybe I missed the discussions because you can’t search for “Chinese chess” on Forumosa; it discards the term “Chinese” from the search. I wonder why that is? It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.
