Game from Falkener's book

    Keywords: Culture & History

There is a complete game from old China given in Games Ancient and Oriental and How to Play Them by Edward Falkener (1892, reprinted by Dover).

Moves 1-10  
Moves 11-20  

This turns out to be a game Li Haimen-Qian Gongnan in the Gogod collection; date given there is 1850. The Falkener record is more complete at the end, and gives White +2.5.

The provenance was probably Giles, British consul in China.
