A sequel to the original Battle Chess, this game takes on a more Chinese approach, both in the rules of the game and in the presentation.
Using a Chinese variation of the game of Chess, pieces like the Queen and Bishop are replaced by Counsellors, Ministers, and Cannon. Pieces behave differently than their European counterparts and even the board is set up differently. Two things remain the same: the ultimate goal of checkmating the opposing player's king and the Battlechess style animated battles that occur when two pieces contend for the same spot on the board.

Battle Chess II: Chinese Chess
actually did NOT implement one of the Chinese chess rules, which says the two kings may not face each other in the same file with no intervening pieces. This makes checkmating the king somewhat harder than it should be, especially in games with very few pieces left on the board.
