What we're about

We are learners of the great board game shogi (将棋) who meet at Game Kastle (Mountain View) to play and discuss 将棋.

Shogi (将棋 shōgi) (/ˈʃoʊɡiː/, [ɕo̞ːŋi]), also known as Japanese chess or the Game of Generals, is a two-player strategy board game. Shōgi means general's (shō 将) board game (gi 棋). Shogi was the earliest chess variant to allow captured pieces to be returned to the board by the capturing player. (from wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shogi )

Learners of all levels welcome, though this group is welcoming those who are new to the game, as well as seasoned players. Focus your mind, learn and play the wonderful game of shogi (将棋)!

とりあえず見学をするだけでもいいので一度将棋サークルに立ち寄ってみてください。
