Toyohara Chikanobu Title:Playing Go and Tea Ceremony (detail)

This features men playing the ancient game of strategy. The Chinese title is "Dui Luan Tu" which can be translated as "Playing Encirclement Chess". This game is very similar to Penta. It involves a great amount of strategy. There is also a more simple game played with the same pieces, which is known as "Go" or "Five-in-a-row". This original form, known as Wei Qi (sometimes Romanized as "Wei Chi" or "Weichi") is so complex that games can last for hours.
