Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
The ancient game of chess has its roots in India, where the legendary emperor Ravana used it to exercise his generals in strategy and tactics. Played by millions around the world, shogi is the uniquely Japanese variant of chess.
"Japanese Chess" is the ultimate book on shogi for beginners and experienced players alike. Its step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow diagrams lead the reader through the strategies and intricacies of one of Japan's most popular board games. Shogi is the only variation of chess in which an opponent's captured piece can be dropped back onto the board as one's own.

This essential resource includes a shogi board bound right into it, folding out for use with the included shogi pieces.
