shogi perfecto

Shogi perfecto has been meeting with an enthusiastic reception all over the world since its release in 2016. I am so excited to announce the release of a new brother of the game today: The shogi perfecto “zen”(禅). Now the first one has been named shogi perfecto “iki” (粋) and these two brothers complete the shogi perfecto lineup.

Chess and Shogi variants have long been played and loved all over the world. 1)Pieces that have their own roles, 2)Boards with checkered patterns and 3)Reuse of captured pieces into play as your own, were huge innovations in the board game history of Chess and Shogi variants. On the other hand, all the games in the Chess and Shogi variants family invented and developed in the world have motifs *1 expressed independently from the rules of games, in figurative or ideographic pieces. Therefore, some people disagree to include Chess and Shogi variants in abstract strategy games. shogi perfecto has been developed in honor of these great innovations of Chess and Shogi variants, and as an “perfect” representation that shogi is one of the great abstract strategy games from Néstor and The Museum of Abstract Strategy Games.

shogi perfecto is now on sales at nestorgames.

iki and zen

shogi perfecto iki

粋 iki

shogi perfecto “iki” is delicately designed strongly respecting authentic shogi. An amazingly stylish marriage of Edo culture and Spanish ambience.

A little smallish board and pieces can easily fit into the Koma-bukuro (koma-bag) with Koma-dais all together. Size of the Board: 27.2cm x 29.6cm (including margins) / thickness: 8mm Size of Koma-dai: 10.5cm x 11.7cm thickness: 5mm

shogi perfecto zen

禅 zen

Bold and bulky pieces are made a little more round. Unlike original Japanese shogi boards, its board has been designed with no margin. The set is named “zen” (禅), aiming for a harmony with Chess that has been long and widely played in the world. Ensō (円相) is applied to its logo.

Large, massive board has a nice presence. Size of the Board: 30.6cm x 33.3cm / thickness: 8mm Size of Koma-dai: 11.2cm x 11.2cm thickness: 5mm

Pieces of “iki” (粋) and “zen” (禅)

To the promoted pieces of iki, a geometric design commonly represent Spanish-Islamic and Edo design *2 is applied.

For the promoted little pieces of zen, we designed a beautiful pattern using the shape of Gold general. It looks like ”fleur-de-lis,” very popular armorial bearing with lilies. To big pieces, a splashed patterns with “※”, that are often used for Japanese kimono fabrics, are applied, to show the moves of the pieces.

See below the pieces of “iki” and “zen”: You can see how different they are in sizes, shapes and patterns.
