Thanks to Poompat for the etymological info. So the second syllable means 'attack'? Well that makes the coincidence an even bigger one, as the Rook is the most powerful piece in the Asian games! It sounds like this game may develop further. A variant with the Met moving as a Goldgeneral - Makruk with a touch of Shogi, as it were - might be interesting.
