Shogi in Oxford / March 2011 shogi event

The Oxford University Japan Society (OUJS) is a student run society which brings together both university members and others with an interest in things Japanese. All are welcome.

On 5 February 2011 membership secretary Enki Cheung launched a Shogi Club with a beginners introduction session and a challenge match. The next shogi event will be on 5 March 2011. This is during the OUJS Matsuri from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th March. The schedule also includes sake and sushi tastings and viewing films by the celebrated Japanese film director and animator Miyazaki Hayao. Details can be found on the OUJS news blog here.

London shogi club member and current British Champion Steven Cain will be there on Saturday and will give a talk on shogi, help with the prizegiving, and offer comments and encouragement to all those learning this great Japanese game.

Shogi London Supplement

An extra website Shogi London Supplement has been set up to provide information on London, UK and other shogi which doesn't necessarily count as news.

At the moment, most of the material reflects similar articles on Shogi London, but the intention is that Shogi London Supplement will merge information from new articles and reflect the most up to date position.

Eventually it will contain material and links for beginners, rather than assuming readers already know all this. The first piece of new content is a more detailed report on the 2008 British Open Shogi Championships than provided in Shogi London.

Phil Holland's shogi pages (club links and events, British Shogi Federation)
Tony Hosking's Shogi Foundation (mainly books)
Lucky Dog's Games (background to shogi, links to larger shogi variants)
