Shogi Class

Every so often, the Amu Plaza department store will have chairs, tables and a whiteboard set up in the middle of one of the floors for teaching kids the finer points of the Japanese chess-like game shogi.

The teacher will set up board problems and then ask the kids how they should respond to each one.

The answer is always the same. "By destroying the other guy and dancing on the bones of their loved ones."
This is usually not the official translation given in the English textbooks.
