It has similar things to western Chess (do not know if your ancestor or his son), but I find it faster and more fun. Has trolleys that look like towers of chess, and horses, but instead of a king you must kill a general, and there are also some canyons that are very bloody. There is also a river in the center, some chips can not cross, and some chips have different name according to the side: what chips are for black elephants, red are for ministers.
Walking in Chinese cities is very common to see retirees playing this game in the street, surrounded by onlookers. Although it's cold on the street, there's got to soldier on, hunched for hours.
