A simpler version of Shogi (Let's Catch the Lion! (aka Dōbutsu Shōgi or animal shogi)).
Every player has just 8 pieces (3 chicks, 2 cats, 2 dogs and 1 lion) and try to catch the opponents lion. The board is 5x6 squares, so it's a shorter game than regular Shogi, aimed at getting children even more interested in Shogi after they've outgrown the original Dōbutsu Shōgi.
Goro-Goro Dobutsu Shogi not only has a bigger board compared to Dobutsu Shogi, it also adds in some more rules of the full Shogi game:
- Reaching the other side of the board with your lion no longer wins you the game. Only capturing your opponent's lion does.
- You can't have two of your own chicks in the same column/file.
- You can't drop a chick for mate.
Taken from the publisher's website:
The cute animal pieces are now combined with Goro-Goro Shogi, a small shogi on 5x6 square board. This is a very good next step for everyone who has played Dobutsu Shogi.
The rules of Goro-Goro Shogi was invented by Japan Shogi Association, and is widely known to be a very good variation of shogi to learn important concepts in shogi, such as handling the generals effectively, importance of promoting a pawn, and mating the opponent's king with successive piece drops.
Cats and dogs run and play in this small board. Highly recommended. Please have fun!Dies ist ein Spiel-Datensatz. Bislang wurde noch kein ausführlicher Spieltest hinterlegt.
