In the series of Avatar, the last airbender, there is a game played by the uncle of the abandoned fire prince. The uncle favors the stone of the "White Lotus" to opens it (for example in book two: earth, chapter "the desert"). The games name sounds like "pi show".

Is there a game in the real world on which this game does base? Or is it a complete fiction?

  • I've downvoted for a total absence of research effort. Just googling the question title would give you ten different pages about the game depicted in the show

Like Valorum hinted me, there are a lot of websites with the Game names Pai Sho as theme.

For example wikifandom has a detailed in universe history and some examples of real life games the Pai Sho could base on.

Pai Sho bears a resemblance to the board games Go, Chinese checkers, straight checkers, and Xiangqi.

    You might also want to mention that the game was fictional but that Nickelodeon created rules and hosted the game online

    @Valorum Thank you for this second hint. But I asked for games Pai Sho bases on. The Nickelodeon game base on the series, so it is interesting (the linked website writes about it), but does not answer my question. Apr 10 '20 at 16:34
