Hello,
There was a famous liu bo silk board found in an Eastern Zhou tomb, in
case you are interested. Is this the world's oldest cloth board? See,
for example,
http://history.chess.free.fr/liubo.htm
which seems to take account of the latest research coming out of China.
Best,
Peter Shotwell
PS If members are interested in that, they would be interested in my
anthropology-oriented articles on early Chinese go at
