This board is for those of you who know what you're doing. There are no instructions, the writing is too small for beginners, and the whole thing is so small, that it really takes some fumbling around with to get it just right when you get into tight situations.

So why get this board? Because it's just what it says it is, A shogi board that fit's in your pocket! It's playable , Magnetic, and rather durable if you treat it extra special, (like not sitting on it, Smashing it, dropping it etc.) The pieces all come stuck together on one big magnetic sheet with punchout's on it. It takes some time and a little skill to get it separated correctly, (i was afraid i would bend and break the pieces before i got them out!) but everything worked out fine, I bring this board with me everywhere, and i don't have to worry about it too much. It doesn't take up alot of room, It wont make me sad if it breaks, and it costs even less than most other travel shogi.

Bottom line, Not for beginners, But recommended for those who can't get enough shogi.

Shogi is as important a game of analysis and complexity as is chess. A person interested in learning Shogi might do well to purchase a larger set, as this one is as exactly as described--a set meant for travel. It won't fit into your wallet. It will fit well into an Armed Forces members cargo pocket or a coat pocket. Yellow Mountain seems to be the dominant provider of Asian games, so an inexpensive set is a good investment to begin learning the game. Those not familiar with the game would do well to purchase a "how to" book such as John Fairbarn's Shogi for beginners volume.

It arrived broken. The plastic is way too flimsy, even for a game of this price/quality. I expected it to hold up a few months of gentle use. The peices are very small and very hard to read. Amazon was great about issuing a refund, but really, I had hoped for better.
