Like any Japanese traditional art, Shôgi (literaly "generals' chess game") has habits of use. It was practiced by Shôgun and Samurai in the medieval era as a martial art forming the mind. It travelled the centuries to become one of the most popular games in Japan.
It is played on a chess board, called Shôgiban, and has 81 squares. At the beginning of the party, each player has 20 flat counters, slightly sharp and light-colored. The aim is to take the opponent's king.
