Scope and content

A wooden Chinese checkers board. It is rectangular and is divided into 72 squares (8 x 9), marked off in pencil. The three Chinese figures down the centre are 7, 14 and 21. In the days of steam logging the Chinese would while away the few idle hours they had playing games of chance. This checkers-type game was one such. In Chinese, it is called "Cheong Kay" (Xiang Qi). On the board, the two competing parties are separated by the Pacific Ocean.
