Hello everyone !
Apart from xiangqi (Chinese chess game) and Weiqi or game of go, Liubo was another popular game in China during ancient times.
Each of the two players has six chess pieces, hence Liubo's name "six strokes".
The paraphernalia of the game includes a dice, chess pieces, a chess board, shavings, a cutting knife, a scraping knife and a holster.
There are a total of 12 chess pieces - 6 black and 6 white (or red) with each color representing one side.
The chess board, otherwise known as "qudao" is usually a square wooden board with grooves of various rectangular shapes and round dots debossed on the white or black surface.
Good day and good game ;)
