Tsumeshogi article on Wikipedia

Post by hirohiigo on Fri Sep 11, 2009 11:29 pm

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article for Wikipedia on Tsumeshogi since the original article was only 1 sentence long. Be sure to check it out to see the rules of Tsumeshogi.

Nice article!

Maybe something to point out when comparing tsumeshogi with western chess problems is the fact that, in tsume, all moves must give check. This may be surprising to old chess hacks, since in chess problems (at least in "composed" chess problems), usually the key move absolutely *can't* be a check - in fact, chess composers will usually try to build the problem so that the key move is the most unlikely one at first glance. This tends to make western chess problems quite useless for training, whereas tsumeshogi practice seems to translate into deadly mating attack skills... (still a Shogi beginner here, but that's the impression I got). :-)

there is great difference between shogi and chess. I would say, that endgame in chess is still (like the whole game) about position. A player with better position wins. In shogi however, the player with the iniciative wins the game. And tsumeshogi definitely is devoted to iniciative. Consider tsume shogi like this: Your opponent gave you a threatmate.
