Chess boards you can't misplace

Chinese archaeologists have found two ancient chess boards engraved on the Great Wall.
The two boards, one for Chinese chess and the other for the ancient game "Tiger Eats Sheep," were engraved on a stone in front of a Great Wall beacon tower possibly in the Song Dynasty (960-1279)...
Tiger Eats Sheep ... I think that might have been the original name of the Trompowsky Attack.
