Asian Chess

Does anyone reading this play any of the Asian chess variants?

One of These Is Not Like The Others: If you've read a bit on the history of chess, you probably know that Chaturanga is the attributed ancestor of the first three and of Western chess, with its French queen and all her attendant craziness. I'm guessing it migrated independently to China and to Japan, as shogi has its pawns one rank forward and xiangqi has the unique pao (cannons).
