Shogi Tips

Give space to the “horns”

The horns are powerful pieces but struggle to move while in their default positions. Move the pieces in front out of the way to give way for the horns to move.

Free some space for the rook

Similar to the horns, the rooks are also useful pieces because they can cover long distances. Take out some of the pieces blocking the way to give room for the rook to get into position early.

Check the movement of the opponent’s “horns”

The horns can easily enter the opposing territory after a few turns. Look closely and observe the movement of your opponent’s horns to avoid getting yours taken.
