Englishman in Japan
Hi, I'm new to shogi, have wanted to try it for a long time, but have never had the time since I came to Japan. My daughter recently started playing it at elementary school, so now I have a good excuse! I've enjoyed watched many of the Hidetchi videos on YouTube and hope to learn much more by being beaten many times! Looking forward to playing you.
Hi Adrianwiz ,
Just relax and enjoy the great game!:)

Thanks for your encouraging words, Gunjiｎ. I think I spend too much time analysing and not enough time playing! The battlefield gets very messy very quickly - I must gain experience before I can hope to gain wisdom, I guess.
Are you an alien? :P
Hope you will enjoy playing on the site and with your daughter! Shogi (and strategical/tactical games) are great for kids and it is even better to play/analyze with family members! I spend a great amount of time analyzing with my younger brother both chess and shogi and it's just great memories!
