For any of you who enjoy playing International Chess, Thai Chess is very easy to learn. If you play international chess well, you will adapt to Thai chess fairly quickly. I love playing it and recently spent an entire afternoon in Bangkok playing with a bunch of motorcycle taxi drivers. The origins of the game are fascinating and I encourage any chess players to take the time (and it won't be much - I learned in about five minutes) to learn. Great fun.
Don't know if it's chess or a form of checkers but the motorcycle taxi drivers I have played with in Bangkok use bottle caps. It cost me 3 large Leo's to learn. :)
