If you've ever wanted to learn Shogi, then this is the most accessible learning tool that we've had released in the west. By the end of it, you'll be comfortable enough with the game to start playing the real thing. As to whether that's enough to justify the steep asking price, think of it this way: I believe you learn a lot about a culture by the games it plays, and Shogi is a deep and enduring cultural artifact of Japan. So, if you do have a genuine interest in the country, its history, and its culture, then I would suggest that learning Shogi is important... and learning opportunities of this standard are few and far between.
SummaryLet’s play and learn Shogi on three levels. Cute animal pieces have marks to show the direction of movement. Have fun increasing your skills from Dobutsu Shogi, Goro-Goro Dobutsu Shogi, and Dobutsu Shogi in the Greenwood. Use all that you learned and start playing Shogi.
