Chess Bead Game
Package for the both chess and Chinese poetry game. The rules of the game involve chess moves from games in pgn format. The board for the game is a Chinese poem of the Tang era, in which the line is equal to 7 characters (the last, 8th vertical is most often punctuation marks). When a piece makes a move, the characters on the board change places. The character on which the piece was is moved to the place of the character to which the move was made.
You can get the result texts and visualize it with the package.
You can use custom game in PGN format.
Inspired by Das Glasperlenspiel by Hermann Hesse.
