Chess board image[edit]

It would be good if any one of you can upload a clear image (of fair use or free) of the chess board so that it is clearer to see the differences. Thanks. Kiwi8 21:42, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

Calling for anyone who is good in SVG graphics creation, to draw up the Aeroplane Chess board in SVG form. Thank you. Kiwi8 (talk) 06:31, 4 January 2009 (UTC)

Game Rules[edit]

I wonder if it's about differnt culture. As for the pt no.3, we used to send one of the player's pieces back to the "airport" when he/she rolled a 6 for thress times. And for point no. 10, we don't let the piece fly over that district when a piece is resting in their homezone space right on the dotted line. Mandy2701 12:42, 18 October 2007 (UTC)

Silly[edit]

Some statements in this unsourced article seem quite silly:

Aeroplane Chess (simplified Chinese: 飞行棋; traditional Chinese: 飛行棋, literally Flying Chess)
Why give the Chinese name here? There is nothiung on the history of the game in the article; is it actually Chinese? Otherwise, the interwiki link is sufficient!
being played by secondary students alike
No-one else playing???
Age range 14-16 (no one is forbidden)
Is there a source for this age range? Ludo is played by much younger children; isn't Aeroplane Chess too? And why an upper limit?
Playing time typically 120 minutes
Sounds rather long - but then, I never played this game.
Random chance Unnecessary (dice rolling)
What is that supposed to mean?
Skills required Dice rolling, Identifying optimal moves
Yes you need to be able to roll dice. Also, to move pieces according to the throw, to understand the rules, and to breathe (or it will be a short game). You don't have to be able to identify optimal moves, but you'll probably loose if you can't. What is the thinking behind mentioning these two skills in particular?

Agree. Want to help me clean this article up? Morganfitzp (talk) 20:37, 29 December 2011 (UTC)

Change article name?[edit]

I think that this article should be changed to its Chinese name, Fei Xing Qi, as per other other Chinese board games, as "Aeroplane Chess" is not a direct translation of its name. Morganfitzp (talk) 23:12, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
