Well, may be you are right. People in Chinatown plays the Chinese chess on a board like this. The game has the same characters as Western chess - knight, pawn, king etc; no queen. The chess pieces are flat, unlike western chess. I did wonder whether they wee playing GO, but the shape of the pieces would be different.
Anyway, I see Chinese chess played here often. You do look carefully.

Thank you. Early morning, you always find chess games in progress. This one tried to gain a height-advantage to survey the battle field.
