Men and their games

This picture was taken in, of all places, Boston, MA. The men are engaged in a game called Xiangqi, which is an ancient Chinese board game related to the western game of chess.

Instead of a duel between two chess masters, the Chinese version seems to be played by two opposing generals, each with a team of trusted advisers constantly dispensing their opinions.  More pictures from the Chinatown in Boston can be found here.
