Setup and play the chess-like game Shogi

Do you like chess? How about Japanese chess? Aren't there different chess variants in Japan though? Maybe, but this specific chess variant is called Shogi. The chess-like game Shogi is won by capturing the king, just like chess, but defeat is conceded at mate, or when mate becomes unavoidable.

This video tutorial gives you a lesson on the initial setup of the Shogi board and then tells you the names of the pieces. You won't believe how similar Shogi is to actual chess.
