This was a fine purchase, I eagerly awaited its arrival and wasn't disappointed. Each piece is double sided, as it should be, And there is a small magnet inside of the sandwiched plastic piece. These aren't strong magnets, but strong enough to play on a bus, or in a bumpy car with no problems, (who wants to play shogi upside down anyway?) The pieces themselves come on a little plastic frame all stuck together, Similar to those plastic model kits that you put together, all you have to do is snap them off the frame, and smooth out the bump left behind by scratching it off. If you pry the pieces apart, which isn't hard to do, you could lose a magnet or something, so don't do it, and you wont have any problems.
The case/board is rugged plastic with a metal playing surface, and comes in a relatively sturdy cardboard box to keep it safe from dust, scratches light rain etc. It's small enough to fit in a back pack or i suppose a large purse, But not too small like some other sets i've seen, which you almost have to play with tweezers. This set is just the right size especially for beginners who have a hard time remembering the characters on the pieces are.
Some last things i'd like to say are that this set doesn't come with any way to keep the pieces separated, (mini boxes, etc.) and doesn't have piece stands, as some more experienced players may be used to. However, all in all, this is a nice Shogi set, that will give you many hours of strategic fun and will hold up under the wear and tear of daily life, as long as you treat it nicely.
This Shogi set it quite nice, pieces would fall if you turn it down, but I don't think you would do that anyway.
My only complaint is that the Kanjis seams a little bit different from what you would see in almost every single website, but this is not a big issue since you can distinguish a little bit, (it seems this is a two characters with cursive style kanjis version) a side from that I recommend this Shogi set as a starting set it's nice, well made and cheap what else do you what? (well perhaps a little rules explanation would have been a good idea, but you do have Internet right?)
If you would like to learn more from Shogi I recommend Wikipedia and Hidetchi youTube Shogi Channel (where you will find an excellent English video lessons).
Now for the review of this particular set.
1. It does not come with an instruction sheet, so you will have to look up the rules online.
2. The kanji are not as clear as they are in the pictures, they use a different font. It looks like it was put on using a caligraphy brush making the symbols less clear and may be hard to read if you are not familiar with kanji.
3. The board/case is strong and feels like it will survive a beating but for me it doesn't seal, so it falls open pretty easily. There is also no holder for the pieces so if it does open up the pieces will go everywhere.
4. The magnets are strong. Despite what others said you can play with it upside as long as you are caruful about how you got it into that position. I still agree with the other reviewers that I have no idea why you would want to though.
I would have to recommend it just for the fact of the near impossibility of finding a decent shogi game here in the States.

I feel as though they didnt put as much thought into this board as they could've. Not to mention that the Shogi pieces split easily. Still It is somewhat decent.Published 8 months ago by Carlos
