Shogi board.
Shogi board.

Kent’s latest hobby is to play Shogi. That makes me an obligatory player and fan as well since, just like chess, Shogi requires two players. We bought a cheap board from Amazon, but he has already stated that a better quality board and pieces is what he would want for Christmas (yes, he is already planning for it).

The game isn’t difficult to play, but I am having an excruciating hard time remembering each piece โ€” labeled with kanji characters โ€” and how they move. Ah, the joys of growing older!
