Afraid I can't help with this one - I don't use the 81 Dojo system. Sorry...

5 minutes later: I was curious, so I tried it. OK, I think I now see how it works.

Go to the 81 Dojo 'portal' (, and click on 'Entrance'.

This should spawn a separate (client?) window with URL:

If they aren't already there, enter your login and password and press 'Login'

You should now see a window with details of games in progress, some help information, etc.

At bottom left, trhere is a list of 'waiting players'. Double click on the player you wish to challenge in the list *above* this one. and you should get some response.

I didn't take it any further than that as I'm not really interested in playing ax the internet.

It's not desparately well documented - I now appear to be registered as 'waiting for a game' - which I'm not, and I can't see how to remove myself from the list...

I *think* that's how it works - good luck!

Are you talking about using:

1) the 81 Dojo system?
2) another web-based Shogi system (Which one?)
3) a stand-alone Shogi program on your own computer (Which one? What computer do you have?)
