Annan Shogi (Japanese:安南将棋 Annan Shōgi) also called Korean Shogi, is a variant of Shogi (Japanese Chess). Annan Shogi is a popular Shogi variant in Japan.

Gameplay Edit

The game is played as Standard Shogi, except that, when a piece has a friendly piece on the square directly behind it, it has the movement of that piece instead of its own. A variant rule is that a piece may move like any friendly piece that protects it.

The game should not be confused with Korean Chess, a variant of Chess that is played in Korea, but which resembles Xiangqi (Chinese Chess) rather than Shogi.
