Introduction

Shôgi (literally "Generals’ chess") was played in the Middle-Ages by shôgun and samurai as a martial art for the mind. Through centuries, it became one of the most popular games in Japan.

It’s played with a chessboard, shôgiban, with 81 squares. At the beginning of the game, each player has 20 flat, slightly pointed, pieces. The aim is to take the adversary’s king.
