Prologue

I like this small box set. . The pieces feel durable enough while also being nice and light. Some reviewers didn't care for the stylized font, but i personally like it. The box top and bottom are firm enough that they can be used as make-shift komadai (stands for captured pieces). . The set is not flawless. There is some ink bleed on a few pieces and a few spots where the wood has an extra bit or a small chip, but overall i'm satisfied with the pieces. The board is literally printed on a piece of legal paper. I suppose it's usable, but i plan on making my own board for future games. Since i was buying this for the pieces anyway i'm not upset about that. . I taught a friend of mine how to play shogi with this set and he liked the game. I didn't directly ask him for a review of the pieces, but he didn't have any complaints. . For the price, i'm glad i bought these. And i hope to get a lot more use out of these pieces.

Yellow Mountain Imports Full Set Of Wooden Shogi Japanese Chess Pieces / Koma Review (bs sh001 a)

I've never played shogi, however a friend wanted to try and these pieces were wood and inexpensive so i figured, "why not"? overall i think they are pretty decent. They are much smaller than i expected and the spaces on the paper board supplied are significantly taller than even the largest piece, but it works. There is variance in the some of the piece sizes even between the same type of pieces, and the style of writing on the pieces is different than whats in the instructions, but its easy enough to figure out. Some pieces were a bit chipped but still functionally okay. Overall, this should be fun and its a cheap way to be introduced to the game. It's extremely easy to make your own board on some scrap wood, cloth or leather if you just measure out 9x9 boxes like whats on the paper board. -P. Whiteman

Very nice wooden pieces with legible kanji. Comes with two sets of pieces, simple instructions such as the names of the pieces and how they move, and a paper mat to play on which is fine for beginners like me. Very satisfied with my order. It was difficult to find pieces as nice as these

P. Kimberly, Cornwall says

For the price, it's pretty decent. I'm a little disappointed that some of the kanji appear to be printed a little thinly here and there i. E. The wood shows through. For this price though, i'm not complaining and am reasonably happy. I intend to make my own board to replace the paper one included and might order a better set from yellow mountain in the future-once i've learned a bit more, that is.

D. Wade, Ohio

The wooden pieces are nicely made for the price. The characters are printed on, not incised. The "board" is folded paper. I plan to flatten it out and have it laminated, as i did with my xiangqi paper board. Laminating a paper board makes it much more pleasant to play on. . I've had a western-style shogi set for decades, and decided i wanted to learn to recognize the japanese characters. It only took me a few hours and some imagination (the gold general is wearing a pointy hat, etc. ) to do so, partly because i had previously made the effort with the chinse xiangqi set, and some of the characters are very similar. The more valuable pieces are larger; there are three sizes, which also helps with recognition.

B. Hadley, South Carolina says

Cheap, nice pieces for the price. Perfect gift for a young kid. A plastic game board sheet would be preferable to paper but can't complain.

V. Dorothy, Bedfordshire

Impulse buy from playing persona 5. I was not disappointed! all pieces are accounted for and i'm looking forward to destroying my opponents with my foot soldiers!

M. Guest, North East Lincolnshire says

I grew up playing shogi and wanted to get decent koma (or shogi pieces) that's not plastic. The material is light and durable, easy to handle. It feels a little rough on some surface, but i imagine it'll get more smooth as we use it more. Good for the price. The writing on the pieces are cheap print. It's good for casual playing with friends and family. Nice ones have words carved and ink filled in the groove. My grandfather's kind, maybe i can have them when i reach his level. . You know how pros and advanced players hold them between index finger and middle finger and slams on the board. I love the sound of koma slamming on the board. This one makes pretty good sound. I never had real expensive koma so i'm happy with this overall. . It comes with the whole set of 40 pieces + 2 extra fuhyo (or pawn), nice addition. We always end up losing fuhyo. It also comes with paper shogi board and instruction sheet which shows how to play and move the pieces.

Q. Alba, Surrey

First let me say that the seller is top notch. The shogi pieces are good quality with clear markings, but not finished. I bought a can of spray- on clear polyurethane at the craft store and they came out beautiful. . Problem was that the factory missed a few pieces in my first box, and again after the seller sent my a second one. However, between the two boxes i have a complete set of great shogi pieces with many extras to spare. . Great set of you get a good one. I hope the factory in china hires someone who can count.

C. Colleen, Kent says

Awesome

O. Alice, West Virginia

I just started getting into the game of shogi and with the lack of quality online interfaces for studying/playing, i opted to get my own set. Even though i'm new to the game, i really wanted to avoid the cheap, low quality magnetic and plastic sets while also not breaking the bank. . I bought this wooden folding board (see my review for that board as well) which didn't come with pieces thus necessitating the need for a piece set. Shogi pieces (known as "koma" in japan) like shogi boards are hard to find outside of japan due to the level of craftsmanship required to make them combined with the relative obscurity of shogi in the western world. Most good, wooden piece sets are available only through importing from japan which can be costly and time-consuming (delivery times are usually weeks if you don't want to pay 2-3 times the set price in shipping costs). . Due to these factors, my initial plan was to get this cheap, $12 set of wooden pieces while i wait for a nicer set to be imported from japan. Upon getting this delivered, however, i canceled my other order because these pieces are actually a decent quality for the price. Given that i'm relatively new to studying this game, it wouldn't make sense to really go all-in on a nicer set anyways. . The wooden pieces are a good weight with a solid, authentic feel to them. The calligraphy is decent, however, i'm not a huge fan of how the characters extend all the way to sides of the piece. Generally, the characters are supposed to be fully contained within the piece and have some padding from the edges. The king piece featured in the product picture is a good example of what i'm referring too. . The pieces utilize the 2-character format for their names. These chinese characters (not japanse) are heavily stylized and written in cursive. This gives the set a very authentic feel but can be hard to decipher for newer players. Even so, most casual players tend to prefer the simpler 1-character variations that use only the top half character and aren't as stylized. So if you're buying this as a beginner or for someone else who is a beginner, do be aware of this prior to making this purchase as it may take some getting used too. . Tl; dr. . Pros:. - cheapest wooden pieces that are widely available. - solid wood feel. - decent caligraphy for the price. . Cons:. - some characters are too big for the piece and extend to the sides. - slight ink bleed on some characters which makes them look sort of "fuzzy". - uses a complicated character set which isn't beginner/westerner friendly

I. Nees, North Carolina says

My grandson, a fan of everything japanese loves this game. He takes it to his japanese class to play with his friends.

U. Carrie, Brighton and Hove

This set is a good set to see if shogi is a form of chess for you. It had the names of the pieces in both japanese, and english. So that made things easier at chess club. That paper mat it comes with is usable, but definitely find an actual chess mat that is a 9x9 squares. The pieces do have some that are uneven, but that is expected, and for the price this is pretty good. My only complaint i have, and to me this is what could have made it a 5 out of 5 stars. The lack of directions. This set doesn t have any kind of directions. So you would need to search online for directions on how to play, and set the pieces up. It would not have costed that much extra to have a set of printed directions included. However, the set is still a good set for the price.

K. Anonymous, Torbay says

A good shogi set is hard to acquire, but if you just want the pieces, this is a great item to get. I bought these hoping to teach shogi to my gaming group, thinking i would buy a nicer set down the road if the game caught on. It worked well for that purpose. The pieces are good quality for the price. Mine had different strokes than the ones in the photo or instructions, but not so different that i couldn't read them. The instructions are clear and packaging is good. The paper board/goban will do to get you started, but any 9x9 grid will work for shogi. However, you'll want to flatten this paper board with some heavy books or something before playing. . Since even chess players often seem intimidated by shogi, i came up with a way to notate the pieces and their names. The normal units are: (l)ance, (k)night, (s)ilver general, (g)old general, k(i)ng, (b)ishop, (r)ook, and (p)awn. Some of these units can be promoted, and then the letter is capitalized. Kings and gold generals don't get promoted, so they're always capital. Now, the paranthesized letters get written on the underside of the piece, so that as it is in play, you can read the letter off the bottom. Use a fine tip marker. Then, you can much more easily teach this game to others. The game has far more depth than chess, particularly when using the 'drop rule' which allows you to return a piece you captured to play as one of your own. But it's not much more complicated than chess. . I recommend these pieces.

O. Lewis, Alabama

Great set! we already know which pieces are which, takes some getting used to but after a couple of games you're fine. The instructions are good, some misspellings and some rules could be explained more clearly. This is a great beginner set with a very good instructions and is highly recommended. Very good game. I will be buying a 9x9 board from ymi as i think i would prefer a wooden board to the paper board that comes with the package. Thank you very much yellow mountain imports!
