Shogi, also known as Japanese chess, is a two-player strategy board game in the same family as Western chess, chaturanga, and Chinese xiangqi, and is the most popular of a family of chess variants native to Japan. Shōgi means general's (shō 将) boardgame (gi 棋). The earliest predecessor of the game, chaturanga, originated in India in the 6th century, and Chinese chess was brought to Japan sometime in the 10th to 12th centuries, where it spawned a number of variants.
