Shogi is a Japanese form of chess. It
originated in India and was introduced to Japan via China and Korea. Shogi,
like chess, is played by moving pieces on a board. The board has 81 squares, 9
by 9. Each player has 20 pieces, which vary in power.
difference of shogi from chess is that you can use captured enemy pieces as
your own pieces. The final object is to checkmate the opposing king.
