Japanese chess, or shogi, is one of Japan's most popular board games. Shogi is the only variation of chess in which each player may drop captured pieces on the board as one's own. This unique rule gives the game greater complexity and depth than Western chess, allowing for very exciting and dynamic gameplay. While shogi has long been considered a game for adults, shogi is increasingly used in Japan and China to train children to improve their concentration and thinking skills. Program Fee is $35 and registration is through Pay 4 School Stuff.
