Q: Source for Bagchen tiles

I have a couple of sets of Chinese dominoes that we enjoy playing games with.  I am interested in a set of Tibetan style tiles for playing Bagchen.  (I know that technically they are the same, but I would like a set of the authentic Tibetan design.)  Finding a source for these has been more difficult than I would have thought in the internet age.  Does anyone know of an online or mail-order house that sells these and ships globally?  I post this in the "Lhasa" section because I've read that they are readily available at shops there.

I've probably seen this on the street markets. They do have a lot of Tibetan workers here working in the mainland. I got me a chess set once not sure where the guy was all I know is a majority or a large part of the sellers are from that region of China. There is a famous street market in Beijing that's where I got my chess set for 10 kuai. You could probably find one here so yes it's probably true that they are readily available here.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
