Er, no, Peter, that name's not a good idea. The letter _q_ is, I believe, peculiar to Mandarin. There is no syllable _cho_ in that language; there is _chou_, which would actually be more appropriate, because the Japanese name of Japanese Chess is more accurately rendered as _Shougi_, but _chouqi_ means things that one probably wouldn't want to call one's invention, from `enemy game, hatred game' through `draw out, exhaust (air)' to `stench'. Something else is in order.
