Shogi (shōgi - 将棋)

Shogi is the Japanese form of chess. The rules are different and flat tiles are used instead of figurines. One main rule difference is that a player who captures a piece can put it back on the board as its own. Go champions are said to play Shogi when they want to relax their minds...
