|A little baked beans Qi|
In traditional Chinese culture, “qi” is an active principle forming part of any living thing. It can be translated as “life energy,” “life force,” or “energy flow.” It is the central underlying principle in Chinese medicine and martial arts. In addition, “qi” means “air,” “breath,” or “gas.”
It’s kinda like “The Force.” Only without light sabers. And all the Jedi Knights look like Jackie Chan instead of Liam Neesom.

That kid playing Anakin? Sucks, he does."
Incidentally, “Qi” can be a killer word in Scrabble. Like “xu” (unit of Vietnamese currency), it is one of a handful of two-letter words which use difficult letters. What’s more, the beauty of “Qi” is that it lets you use that pain-in-the-ass “Q” when you don’t have a “U.” This is especially important when your dumb-ass opponent plays a word like frikkin’ “muumuu.”
If you play your cards...err...tiles right, “Qi” can net you over thirty points.
And that’s a gas we can all breathe.
