ZHENG DUTCH WAR CHESS

The story dates back to 1661 when Zheng Chenggong (Koxinga) started a battle against the Dutch, who occupied Taiwan at that time. Zheng took over the island in order to support his grand campaign against the Manchu-ruled Qing dynasty.
The game is based on the most important battle between Zheng Chenggong (Koxinga) and the Dutch. It is a Taiwanese chess game featured with the visual design of the most representative Taiwanese blessing sky lanterns.
