Shogi or Japanese chess, is the most popular of a family of chess variants native to Japan. Technically the game is won when a king is captured, though in practice defeat is conceded at checkmate or when checkmate becomes inevitable. Two players, Black and White (or sente and gote), play on a board composed of squares (actually rectangles) in a grid of 9 ranks (rows) by 9 files (columns). The squares are undifferentiated by marking or colour. Each player has a set of 20 wedge-shaped pieces of slightly different sizes. Except for the kings, opposing pieces are differentiated only by orientation, not by marking or colour.
