Shogi

Shogi

£12

Shogi is also known as Japanese chess or the Generals’ Game, is a two-player strategy board game in the same family as Western (international) chess, chaturanga, makruk, shatranj and xiangqi, and is the most popular of a family of chess variants native to Japan. Shōgi means general’s board game. Shogi is similar to chess but has a much larger game tree complexity because of the use of drops. The opening consists of arranging one’s defenses and positioning for attack, the mid game consists of attempting to break through the opposing defenses while maintaining one’s own, and the end game starts when one side’s defenses have been compromised.

Tournament Format
Players Per Table – 2
Rounds – 4
Clock Settings – 10 minutes per player plus 10 seconds of increment per turn

To encourage new Shogi players to participate we will be using Western friendly piece-sets (icons rather than Japanese symbols, like the board set up on the right in the PlayStrategy rules link). As well as intuitive icons, promotion is indicated by stacking a piece instead of flipping. However, should both players wish to, they may use a traditional set for their game.
