5.0 out of 5 stars Nice tsume book, 21 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tsume Puzzles for Japanese Chess: Introduction to Shogi Mating Riddles (Paperback)
This is an attractive book. The font used to display the symbols of the pieces is very clear. There is a contents page before page one.
I haven't had an opportunity to try any of the puzzles yet so I cannot comment on them. In the back there is also an advert for a Shogi program which interests me.

This gives a brief history of Shogi, the rules of Shogi, Tsume rules and Tsume notation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice tsume book - is it the only tsume book in English?, 7 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tsume Puzzles for Japanese Chess: Introduction to Shogi Mating Riddles (Paperback)
There's not a lot of information in English about Shogi. There's even less about tsume (Shogi mating problems), so this book is a welcome addition to the small canon of such material.
