Response to LiL's Adventures in Tibet - Part 4 - Random pics


Chess originated in India and spread to West to Persia and East to China (and beyond).  Thus, there was 'Tibetan' chess before it reached China.

Chinese Chess is what the Chinese changed and re-exported back to Tibet (and beyond).

My little bit of passive protest on behalf o the Tibetans.
