My girlfriend's sons prefer using this set for Chinese Chess, and I agree that it could get more Americans and Europeans into the game. Unfortunately, it is not in production, and as far as I know, my sets are rare antiques. It would be great if some other company would start producing something like this. With the greater exposure that the web is giving to Chinese Chess in the west than it ever had here in 1973, a set like this has a better chance of turning a profit.
