on a game board that is part of a Bronze in downtown Kunming, Yunnan province, China. The cup in the upper left hand corner is a teacup, not an ashtray. Thx to Davvi’s tip I found the description of the game on wikipedia. It’s called Xiangqi (象棋).

    very nice shot.. if i’m not wrong, the game is called ‘Chinese checkers’..

  • I was guessing the same, but a friend of mine thought it looked more stratigic than that. Maybe ‘Go’?
