Notes

Wa Shogi is first mentioned in literature in the 17th century. The pieces are all named after birds or animals, and the names are very whimsical (even by Shogi variant standards). Other than the initial board setup and moves of the pieces, little definite is known about the game. It is assumed that in most respects the rules were identical to Shogi, but it is unclear whether or not the game was played with drops.

Other Information

The board used for this game has 11 row(s), 11 column(s), 121 cells/squares.
This game is a 2 player game.
