I 've just stumbled onto so nice graphics reworking of the shogi pieces:
I am (still) not a shogi player but i found these pretty nice (even though i would probably just end up using the original pieces)
The current set of Westernised pieces in LG is probably the most iconic and universally recognised one though. It’s Hidetchi's Internationalised Pieces. I don’t know if the other ones are better, but I think that this one is sufficiently beginner-friendly for people that don’t read Japanese or Chinese.
You should definitely try out Shogi soon :)
I've just checked Hitechi's design .. less flashy for sure, but i guess it's more traditional/effective. Shogito may end more complicated in the end..
I will try Shogi later, now i will focus on Xiangqi (ordered a book for Xmas) .. want try that intriguing Cannon piece :)
I’m intrigued. What book is that?
It's a french book, seems a pretty complete introduction overview (400+pages … opening,midgame, ending)
This company also published ressources about mahjong, shogi and go
Seems most english ressources are made by Jim Png, also founder of xqinenglish.com
Oh nice. I should probably look at more French resources. Maybe let me know if the book is really good. Thank you!
