Description Edit | History

Shogun: An exciting digital game.

This game plays on a 8×8 grid, with each player having 7 pawns and 1 King, which start lined up on opposite sides of the board. Each player can remove the other's pieces by moving onto them, as in chess.

But what sets this game apart is that there is a window on each piece, which shows a number indicating the number of moves that piece can make. And due to the working of many magnets under the board, the number automatically changes depending on which space the pawn or king is on.

Each of the pawns responds differently on the board. After several games the board can be rotated to keep the players guessing.
