楚漢相爭時的鴻溝,或標上「觀棋不語真君子,起手無回大丈夫」等字樣。
現行的中式記錄方法是:九條直線,紅方從右到左用漢字「一」至「九」表示,黑方在自己的那一面從右到左用數字「1」至「9」表示。也就是說,紅方的直線「一」-
就是黑方的直線「9」,以此類推。第四條直線(或第 6 條直線)和第六條直線(或第 4 條直線)稱為「兩肋」、「兩肋線」,簡稱「肋」。棋盤上,劃有斜交叉線而構成「米」字形方格的地方,雙方各有一塊,稱為「九宮格」,簡稱「九宮」,是將/帥和士/仕活-

==================================================
Xiangqi (Chinese: 象棋; pinyin: Xiàngqí) is a two-player Chinese board game in the same family as Western chess, chaturanga, shogi, Indian chess and janggi. The present-day form of Xiangqi originated in China and is therefore commonly called Chinese chess in English.
The game represents a battle between two armies, with the object of capturing the enemy's "general" piece. Xiangqi is one of the most popular board games in China. Distinctive features of Xiangqi include the unique movement of the pao ("cannon") piece, a rule prohibiting the generals (similar to chess kings) from facing each other directly, and the river and palace board features, which restrict the movement of some pieces.
Besides China and areas with significant ethnic Chinese communities, Xiangqi is also a popular pastime in Vietnam.
Its Chinese name can be treated as meaning "Image Game" or "Elephant Game":
象 means primarily "elephant" and is derived from a stylized drawing of an elephant; it also means "image", as a jiajie (re-use for another word which was pronounced the same).
棋 means "game".
Xiangqi contains features which are not in Indian chess: the river, the palace, and putting the pieces on the corners of the squares. These features may have come from an earlier Chinese board game (perhaps a war-type game) which was also called 象棋 (Xiangqi). As in an astronomical context 象 sometimes means "constellation" (i.e. a figure made of stars), there were early Chinese theorizings (which Harold James Ruthven Murray followed and believed) that the older Xiangqi simulated the movements of stars and other celestial objects in the sky.
