Chinese Chess, or Xiangqi 象棋 (elephant chess),
is a version of chess very popular in east Asia. The rules are very analogues to the international chess. However, partly due to the freedom and power of the Rook over other pieces, and the limited freedom of the General, it is forbidden to repeat perpetually a direct thread (i.e. perpetual check 長將, perpetual thread of capture 長捉, a check and then a threat of mate 一將一殺, or a combination of these). This needs to be taken into account in the board representation.
