In Sweden, this game is played a lot (mostly to kill time during classes). Unlike in the US, we play it with unlimited space (I've filled two pages of drawing paper in ONE GAME with a friend once). Oh, and you need 5 symbols in a row, to make it more unpredictable. The funniest part about it is the name, though. Literally, it translates to Hobo Chess.

Yes, that's its REAL name.
