Dive into the Ultimate Shogi Experience!

Unearth the magic of Shogi (将棋, shōgi) – Japan's treasure of strategic gameplay, revered as their version of Chess. Engage in thrilling battles on a board where every move tells a story. 'Shōgi', translating to the general's (shō 将) board game (gi 棋), is a testament to its captivating legacy.

Witness the unique charm of Shogi: the strategic genius of deploying captured pieces back onto the board, a twist that has captivated enthusiasts since its ancient inception.

Endorsed by legendary player Yoshiharu Habu, Shogi isn't just Japan's favorite pastime – it's a masterpiece of art. A symphony that harmonizes seamlessly with the traditional echoes of haiku, tanka, noh, ikebana, and the soulful Japanese tea ceremony.

Boring and too easy

It’s too easy and boring.
Even on expert setting, it’s still easy to beat.
Not challenging enough.
