Play Japanese Chess Online

Shogi (Japanese Chess)

Chess variants all come from an Indian game called Chaturanga created around 600 AD. As the game migrated east and west it changed. Western Chess and Japanese Chess (Shogi) are cousins of the original game from India. Japanese Chess (Shogi) was played in Japan in the modern form about 500 years ago.

Japanese Chess differs from other chess variants because of the drop rule. Pieces captured become yours, and you can choose to drop them back on the board to attack their former army!
