Janggi is the Korean name for a strategic board game widespread in Korea.
It was derived from Chinese Xiangqi. The game looks very similar to Chinese Xiangqi, such as starting position of pieces, and the 9 x 10 point board, without the Chinese river in the middle.
In addition, Janggi has some Korean innovations. Janggi is sometimes called Korean chess. Other romanizations of the game are changgi, and jangki.
It is played on a board nine lines wide by ten lines long.
