First I should explain that Shogi is a version of Chess, or Chess is a version of Shogi. They both come from the same game invented many centuries ago. Shogi is different from Chess in several ways, but the biggest is that pieces that are captured are used by the player who captured them. So 'end game' as found in Chess does not happen in Shogi.Shogi also has a 9 x 9 playing board instead of an 8 x 8 board like Chess. The pieces in Shogi are King, Knight, Pawn, Bishop, Rook, Gold General, Silver General and Lance. (These of course are not the Japanese names for the pieces.)One challenge to new players of Shogi, is that traditionally the pieces have Kanji on them. This is very hard for English speakers. I've modified this to version to use either Kanji OR pictures which make more sense to English speakers. I've also made some levels of the game play easier for players, so that even a young child can find a level they can win against. This will introduce anyone new to Shogi in a gentle way, before they tackle the Kanji version.Shogi is a Japanese version of chess. If you enjoy chess you'll love Shogi. I have included a traditional Kanji style token view as well as a beautiful icon style view that I call "Davis Style" tokens (Catchy name, no?).
