Tobi Shogi DLP Game   

Period Modern

Region Eastern Asia

Category Board, War, Replacement, Checkmate, Shogi


Tobi Shogi is a game with leaping captures that was played in Japan during the early twentieth century. It uses the Shogi board and pieces, but adapts them to a different game entirely.


9x9 board. Played with the full complement of Shogi pieces, placed in the first and second rows. All pieces move only one space orthogonally forward or laterally. Pieces capture by hopping over an opponent's piece. The player to capture all of the opponent's pieces wins.

Murray 1951: 147.
