Hi,

Today I received my copies of Goro-Goro Dobutsu Shogi (BGG entry is still awaiting approval..). On the back of the rules booklet were images of various versions of Dobutsu Shogi. One of them caught my eye as it was a version that I didn't yet know of. A version that also wasn't available in Nekomado's online shop at the time that I ordered the Goro-Goro Dobutsu Shogi games.

So I went back to the Nekomado online shop only to find that this particular version of the game still wasn't available! So then I decided to write them an email asking for more info about it. Let's hope they reply soon and I'll keep you posted in this thread.

The new version is a very lovely natural looking wooden edition of the game. Even the board is made from wood. And the graphics are all in a single colour and might even be 'branded' onto (into?) the wood itself!

I think it looks very very nice!



Martijn

Really now?

Well, give us a teaser then!

Thus far I've only collected the Nekomado/Gentosha Education versions of the game, but the Nestorgames version very likely going to be one that I'll add to my collection as well. And if that happens, I'll will probably also finally get the Polish version (the one with the robots). I've held that off thus far. Wasn't always easy.. And I'm really starting to cave in now that there's this new wooden version, as well as an upcoming Nestorgames version!

That is cool indeed.. Now I'm really curious about what sort of graphics style you'll be going for.. I reckon it must be more abstract than the animals of Dobutsu Shogi.

Thanks!

The opposite. They will be more detailed.

Moreover, the tiles will not be squared, but 'pointed up' (pentagons).

Ah.. Now we're talking. Those are the things that make it even more interesting.

About the shape: The pieces will be more like traditional Shogi tiles then. That is also a very neat idea.

Will your version just be the original Dobutsu Shogi? Or will it also support shogi variants like Goro-Goro Dobutsu Shogi ( http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/961369/goro-goro-dobutsu-sho...)?

Madoka is also involved with the Goro-Goro variant, so maybe it's possible?

Thanks,
Martijn

Only the original by now. But time will tell...
