Gaming, Guangzhou style!

Gaming GZ style 2.jpgJust walking around the city you get an idea of what the locals do when they don’t work. They play, of course. By all means smartphones have their place (mostly with those who have them) but, these games are traditional board games and it seems, are everywhere. I’ve seen Chinese chess being played in the North of China as well as Guang-dong, which is in the south.

On a more personal observation, the game of Mah-jong is also played everywhere but mostly by the elderly. It fills the need and they do have time. I have watched countless rounds being played at my grandfather’s house by my mother, aunts and uncles and also by my great aunts and uncles. A game in that instance played for sixpence a round.
