Chinese Chess on the Streets of Beijing

At most Chinese cities, street-side chess culture is quite prevalent. This photo was taken at Beijing on July 2008. Usually two players would play with modest equipment and attract a small group of usually male spectators. I participated twice in such matches in Harbin (哈尔滨)。
The rule for this wonderful board game can be found on wikipedia. An online Chinese chess game can be found at
