I must say, finding a shogi board at a nice price in the united states is hard enough. But then try to find one that can take on the rigors of a collage back pack, one that if it does break, wont break your wallet to replace it. As a beginner to shogi, I thought it would be wonderful to have such a board, to bring around with me, and teach friends with, and in the mean time I could get better at it too!
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.

I came to know Shogi because of Anime, but after reading in Wikipedia and other websites, It really seems an entertainment game, quite like chess but more challenging.

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).

I am Japanese and wanted my sons to learn Shogi. And I also gave this away to my high school student who studies Japanese with me. They all thought it is cool and were willing to learn Japanese chess. Only down side is that the magnet inside gets out easily. I wish they are little bit more durable. But if you over look that, it is a nice learning piece. It of course may not last forever but, if they really like it, I can always get the real wooden ones.

I bought this for my son so I had to ask him and this is what he said "I love it,you can tip it over and things shift but don't fall off." He says it is well made and he would highly recommend it.

I bought this for my son, who loves playing chess and thought this game would be a fun alternative. He absolutely loves it!

The set is easy to take along (he took it on an out of state trip) and is light weight, but sturdy enough. It seems to be holding up to the many times he's played with it with friends.

I'd recommend this set for anyone wishing to try a slightly different thinking and concentration type board game. It does take a little to get used to the game itself, but he felt it was well worth the learning curve.

I was the best aunt at Christmas dinner! Getting the magnetic travel set was a good choice because my nephew was able to take the set with him as we made rounds for holiday dinner. He can also take the set with him to school to play after school or during lunch break. I did get this with a wooden traditional set, which I would recommend. That way you have a set that is for use at home and another that can be taken on the go. The price is right, so I wouldn't be upset if it were damaged or if he lost pieces, whereas if something happened to the other set I wouldn't be a happy auntie.

i love playing Shogi and teaching people on trips i go on. The pieces are a little uneven when you snap them off the bar they come on and if they hit the ground from a long distance, they will actually split in half and the magnet will fall out. Although id much rather prefer an original shogi board, the travel one is very handy to have.

I ordered this specifically for my boyfriend's birthday. He absolutely loves it. It's perfect for him to carry around at college. The magnets are pretty strong, and the pieces are flimsy. The only thing I dislike about this product is that it seems a bit small, but even in saying that, this was the biggest one I've been able to find.
