Maybe other sort of stones better

Post by Andy 2022 »

As Shogi is a japanese form of chess, it's stones have japanese characters which may confuse unexperienced and new players and holds them back from playing. There is another form of stones also which are simplified and also show the possible moves. It would be great if players could choose between those two character-sets.

I agree. A western set of pieces, or even the animal pieces would be nice and make the game much more accessible for people who want to try it.

Count me in the group of people wanting this as well. I've wanted to learn Shogi for a long time, but I can't learn with the Japanese pieces. Thank you for your consideration
