Playing Around

Mike was big into learning Chinese games.  In Xiaogan, I taught him how to play Ma Jiang, and he was soon beating me in head to head matches.  Eventually, Tian and her parents joined in for a piece of the action.  Mike held his own and won several games.

The big leagues.

Tian's dad repeatedly humbled us at Chinese Chess.

One hot afternoon in Xiaogan, Mike and I walked around the neighborhood and came across these two ladies playing Chinese Chess.  We watched them for a game, and then they invited us to play.  They held nothing back and completely dominated us.  Mike came in third, and I lost.
