Description

What happens when you pit a jumping tiger over a swimming dog? A tiny mouse against a powerful elephant? Or, a house cat against a once-mighty lion who is stuck in a trap?

You'll find out when you play the two person strategy game, "Chinese Jungle Chess"!

This game is called "鬥獸棋" (Dou Shou Qi) in Chinese, meaning "Game of Fighting Animals". This game is similar to "Stratego", each player has 8 animal pieces that vary in levels, and a few have special skills.

The goal of the game is to have your animals seize your opponent's den, but you have to make sure you protect your own! Thankfully, your den is surrounded by three traps that will render any animal (no matter how strong!) completely powerless. The animals include ferocious (but cute!): elephants, lions, tigers, leopards, wolves, dogs, cats and mice!

Planning ahead is necessary to be victorious, so this game is perfect for grade-school children who show an interest in chess, strategy games, East Asia, animals or who just like board games! Great for parents who want to introduce their children to more complicated and mentally stimulating games. But! This game is also great for adults, and I play it myself!

Because this is a strategy game, the age level is similar to that of starting checkers or even chess. Depending on the child, ages 6 and up would be appropriate. The beauty of this game too, is that it's challenging for both children and adults! I thoroughly enjoy playing this game, and am always excited to teach it to friends.

The game includes a fully illustrated cloth game board with an instruction booklet and 16 wooden game pieces. Each animal has it's Chinese name on the back, too! The cloth board is ideal for folding or rolling so it's great to bring on a trip or to the park. Just smooth it out with your hands so you can place your pieces. The board, pieces and instruction booklet all fit neatly in a sturdy 100% recycled box.

Hǎo yùn! Good luck!
