Two tuk-tuk drivers playing the Cambodian game referred to in an earlier post. It may be called “Ouk”, although when I asked what the game was, the drivers replied with something that sounded like “Raysh”.
From our brief conversation using hand signals, I gather the game is played on what looks like a regular chess board, but incorporates extra, special files and ranks on the margin. There are two types of pieces, rocks and sticks, and if one player places his rock in between two adjecent sticks (e.g. Rock to e4, with opposing sticks on d4 and f4), both sticks are captured.
Please correct me if I’ve named or described this incorrectly, or if you know anything more about this game.
