Shogi – Japanese Chess
This game has a long history in Japan.
The goal of the game is to capture the opponent's king. The playing pieces of the two players are distinguished by the direction of the pointed sides, as opposed to the colours. It shows who the playing pieces currently belong to.
Compared to chess, Shogi has charming differences and additional rules that make the game interesting.
An important difference is in the capture and reuse of playing pieces. This means that these do not decrease in number during the game so the tide can turn at any time for the player. The second basic difference relative to classical chess is the upgrade of game pieces, which provides them with more options for moves.
The game pieces become stronger and the game more appealing.
This game is not just for good chess players looking for new challenges, but is also suited for beginners.
Warning! Not suitable for children under 3 years due to small parts! Danger of suffocation.
