RESOBOX is proud to present a series of meetups and workshops with The New York Shogi Club! We will be hosting a few meetups for Shogi lovers to come together, play Shogi and have fun!
Shogi is a Japanese board game played by two players. The object of the game is to capture the opponent’s King. Shogi is played on a nine-by-nine board and each player has twenty pieces. Shogi is much like ‘western’ chess, but has some very interesting differences. One is that almost all pieces can promote to stronger pieces once they reach the opposite side of the board. The second very important difference is that when a piece is captured, it becomes a piece for the capturing side, and can be dropped back onto the board! This makes for a very exciting game, with an extremely low percentage of draws. Many strong Chess players have found Shogi to be a great game to play.
