Motorcycle taxi operators stave off their boredom outside peak hours with a game on the footpath...although they are using chess pieces, they are almost certainly playing draughts [checkers].
This is an affluent gang...in many places their pieces are bottle-tops and their board is a chalk drawing on the footpath.
These guys wait outside my apartment complex; I know them, as I am a user of their services; I find them to be friendly, courteous, competent and trustworthy.
