Re: North Korean Janggi: They Play It Differently!

I am fortunate to have many friends from South Korea, one of these friends has informed me that in the Communist North they play Janggi differently:

-The General (Cho楚/Han漢) is called the Marshall, regardless of side, discarding the foreign Chinese Chu/Han war for a more patriotic reflection of the countries system of government by using the preferred title of the current head of state.

If they are playing the game on Kim Jon Un's birthday, they call The General "Our Holy and Great Leader."
