Come join us for another night of learning and playing Shogi! These events are tailored towards players of all levels, beginners are highly encouraged to join our welcoming atmosphere. For those new to the game, 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.

Our goal with these events is to provide beginners a friendly environment to learn the game and find other beginners, and hopefully provide seasoned players a venue to play find challenging opponents.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their favorite shōgi-ban and koma to show-and-tell! Don't worry if you don't have a board or koma of your own, we always bring extra material so everyone can play!
Hope to see you there!
