Zillions of Games

Zillions of Games | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it

Zillions 2.0 reads all current rules files and has been tested with over 5,000 different game variants in over 1,000 rules files. It has been revised to be fully Windows XP compatible and to support massively complex games. Zillions 2.0 requires DirectX 8 or higher.

 

 

Yannick Kilberger's insight:

The ultimate software for casual players, plays nearly all classic boardgames, especially lots of chess variants (hundreds of them). Among others, it plays Shogi, Xiangqi, Reversi, Hasami Shogi, Checkers, Gomoku, Pente, Dou Shou Qi...

Shogi Channel on Youtube

Shogi Channel on Youtube | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it

 

 

Yannick Kilberger's insight:

Hidetchi's Shogi channel on youtube. Learn to play, study openings, watch commented games. Due to the lack of books on the subject in english this is the best ressource to learn the game.

Bonanza

Bonanza | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it
Yannick Kilberger's insight:

A very strong shogi program bundled with a retro interface. Once again the site is in Japanese, the download link is the one featuring the program size (40MB at the time I write this).

8000 Shogi Problems

8000 Shogi Problems | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it
Yannick Kilberger's insight:

A huge shogi problems database. Features 1000 mates in 1, 1900 mates in 3, 2000 mates in 5 and so on up to mate in 15! It is written in Japanese yet easy to understand.

 

- Move pieces in free mode as you like until you think you have found the solution and then click the big F in the upper right corner to display the solution.

- Piece promotion is done by dragging a piece to the purple rectangle.

Retro Gaming : Super Tsume Shogi 1000

Retro Gaming : Super Tsume Shogi 1000 | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it

 

 

Yannick Kilberger's insight:

The title is self-explanatory, 1000 shogi problems for the super-nintendo. The rom and an emulator should be easy to find on google.

Shogidokoro

Shogidokoro | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it
Yannick Kilberger's insight:

Arguably the best Shogi program for Windows. Can use the GPS Shogi engine. The site is in Japanese but the game is in English. The download link is the one featuring the latest version (2.7.2 at the time I write this).

K-Shogi

K-Shogi | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it
Yannick Kilberger's insight:

Nice Shogi program, all in Japanese so you will have to experiment on the menus. Features many strength levels. The first link on the page should be the zip of the game.

BCM Shogi

BCM Shogi | Abstract Board Games | Scoop.it

A beautiful shogi interface, lots of customizable features. Comes with the Spear Shogi engine which is just as well since trying to install one on your own can result in a severe headache (that is not limited to BCM games)...
