Shogi is the Japanese version of chess. Sho (meaning general) and Gi (meaning board game) allows you take charge of your own army to defeat your opponent.

The Dutch Shogi Association ( NShB ) , is an association that deals with the introduction and preservation of Japanese Chess ( Shogi ) in the Netherlands . They also organize an annual Dutch Championship .
NShB maintains contacts with the Japanese shogi organization , the Nihon Shogi Renmei and maintains the classification of shogi players . This is done through the ELO rating. This is a global scoring and ranking system , which fluctuates with every game played , and as a strength rating reflects the player ( s ) .

So if you want to learn how to play shogi , come by there stand at the event plaza and just take a seat.

The Dutch shogi association will be present all weekend at the event plaza. You are welcome to join for a game at any moment.
