Hi Mat,

Thanks. Sounds interesting. You might want to look at Appendix III of both
my Origins article and the Tibet one. Also, Appendix II of the Origins
article goes into the possible history behind divination and games. (
www.usgo.org/bobhighlibrary)

I think you might be thinking of the old theory about the origins of
go--I've never heard of Chinese chess pieces being used this way, though I
suppose it's possible. This is one of the theories about go that I question
heavily in the body of the Origins article (which is repeated in Appendix
III).

Best,
Peter
