First Texas Shogi Club Meeting Scheduled – May 18

We are going to have the first Texas Shogi Club meeting at Barbara Bush Library in Houston, Texas.  It will be May 18, 2008 from 2-4.  Feel free to drop by at any time there.  If you are a good Shogi player come.  If you have never even heard of Shogi (Japanese Chess) but would be willing to at least hear about it, come. 

We will have several boards setup to play Shogi.  My son and I both can play.  But if you can play or at least know the rules, please come.  We will be passing out instructions and very basic paper shogi boards and pieces so that you can play.  We will be teaching the rules of Shogi.  We will have several computers setup so that you can play against the computer if you are waiting. 

This is the first of monthly meetings.  I hope to have a Texas Shogi Championship next year.  I would like to get a clubs going in several places in Houston, Beaumont, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, Galveston, and maybe other places in Texas as well.  So, if you are interested in starting a Shogi club in any of those places, let us work together…

  1. Good luck on getting a good shogi club going in Houston! I live in DC and have been looking to start one for a while now, but can’t ever seem to ever find enough players…

    It would be interesting if you chronicled how you build this new shogi club from scratch–it may help other shogi players in the US to learn how they can start one themselves.

    On a minor unrelated note, I just want to mention that I almost didn’t post this comment because of a forced login. You really should set it up so anyone can post comments.

    Cheers, and good luck to you.
