Shogi – the Japanese chess – follows a age long tradition.

One thing makes it exceptional: The captured piece can be droped again as your own pieces. That makes for a dynamic game that ends in race for mate.
With our beginners sets everyone can try out shogi easily.

Players with some experience are invited for an exciting game.

Japanese Chess (Shogi) Tournament

At the same site of the European Go Congress in Oberhof

We are happy to announce the organization of a Japanese Chess (Shogi) Tournament.

This is meant to be a part of our efforts to promote one of “The Siblings of Go” in terms of a “good playing neighborhood” of both games.

This tournament is designed for all players and officials, who take part at one of the European Go Congress in Oberhof and can’t stop trying to play other sophisticated board games. It is open to any kind of strength the players might have and open to anybody.


The format depends heavily on the number of players which will show up at the beginning of the tournament. Registration will be between 09.30 and 10.00 o’clock on site.

The main section will play 5 rounds. The number of registered players determines heavily the mode of play (MacMahon, swiss system or round-robin system).

We will use chessclocks. The time for every player playing the 5 round format will be

30 minutes and 10 seconds byoyomi for each per player and match.

Entry fee:

For all participants of the EGC 2017 = no fee
