The game pieces in the set are also made from natural wood. Some of the pieces contain natural wood grains as well as rings. The writing on the pieces appears to have been written by hand, as some pieces have discolored from someone whipping the ink away to rewrite some characters.
Unfortunately, this set does not come with anything to house the pieces captured by both players during game play. The pieces are made from scrap pieces of wood--the result is one pawn had a distorted shape. Some of the larger pieces are a little wide for the squares on the board.
As for the instructional sheet it does no more than explain the basic rules of Shogi. Matching the pieces to sheet may be confusing to those who cannot read Japanese because the writing in the manual does not match the font use on the actual game pieces--especially for rook, bishop, knight and silver general.
This set gives only the bare essentials needed to play and to learn how to play Shogi. It comes with a sheet explaining the rules, game peices, and a board with a drawer to house all the game pieces. The piece comes with two extra pawns; so the distorted piece may be discarded. Aside from minor issues (a distorted pawn, the writing on the pieces written in a different font and manner than what is written on the sheet, and the size of major pieces being too wide for the squares on the game board) this is a very nice piece.Read more ›
As another reviewer has said, some of the pieces are larger than the squares, but going slightly over the lines isn't really a big problem. Some of the wooden pieces are slightly chipped or flawed (no paint missing - it was chipped before painting), and the red ink on the promoted sides seems to be somewhat faded on many of the pieces. One or two of the black-ink sides were slightly smudged.
In short, this is a great set for playing shogi with. Not so much a collector's set to display proudly, but that's not what I got it for.
The one thing that does impress me quality-wise, is the drawer under the board for storing the pieces. It slides in and out easily (from either side), and when sliding in, it smoothly finds its place. It's not too easy to overshoot that place, nor does it jarringly "snap" into place. It just "finds" it.
Following an idea from youtube, I took a sharpie to the pieces, to mark on the corners what the available moves for all the pieces were. Dots for single-square moves, short lines at the edges for distance moves (lance, rook, bishop), and L-shaped hooks at the front for the knights. Hopefully this makes it easier for a new player to join the fun.
-Board is raised, not flat, for added comfort
-Pieces are different sizes based on power, useful for quickly recognizing them
-Two extra pawn pieces
-Came with basic instructions
-Pieces are kind of light, they can slide around more than I'd like them too
-Pieces are either too big or board is too small, and the larger ones are a little bigger than their squares
-The drawer inside the board isn't divided or anything, and there aren't tables on the side to place pieces. My friend and I just keep our pieces on each side of the drawer, but it would be nice to have a divider or something.
The board exceeded my expectations from the description. The board is very well made for the price, and the set I got looked better than the product image. The bottom of the board is even covered in felt, which is an unnecessary nice touch, a sign of the quality put in making the board.
The pieces are as the other reviewers said - real wood, cut and beveled completely in x, y and z axis as they should be. Some corners chipped, as will happen when cutting real wood like that, which is quite acceptable in a mass produced product. The pieces are stamped in black on the front and on the back in red. The pieces are not lacquered at all, just bare wood (as opposed to the board top, which is lightly lacquered or polished.) Note that a stylized brushstroke font is used, which is nice, as this is a decorative set. But to my tastes, I like the board better than the pieces.
Shown is a photo of the set with the drawer pulled out.
I was given a discount on this product for an honest review of it. I am giving my honest opinion of the product.

It came with all the pieces needed to play the game, so that is always a plus. This came with 20 Pawns (2 extra I guess), 2 rooks, 2 bishops, 4 lances, 4 knights, 4 silvers, 4... Read morePublished 7 days ago by k33pitReal
the board is great. The pieces are good. The kanji are random and not the same as in the instructions. redo the kanji to match and you are good.Published 3 months ago by potzo
Pretty good set, but I was disappointed in its size (granted, I should have read the dimensions), and it's a *bit* flimsy. The price is right, so I'm not terribly upset. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Tammi Robinson
