My favorite day as can attend to the chess club's activity. ^_^
Chess club weekly activity is just simple gathering. Members can come and play any kind of chess with each other to increase the relationship and playing skills. That is the only time I can promote the shogi every week. So far that night, I teach about 6 peoples on how to play the shogi. A big step on my promoting shogi plan. I will plan a shogi lesson on the next Monday, in order to maintain the attendance of the members at the same time popularize the shogi among them. Some of peoples are just say they don't know how to play and straight away pickup the chess or Chinese chess to play.
Some time I just think that, the chess is quite hard to be promoted, due to the new generation of people is lazy to think. My generation is due to the influence of our grandfather or uncle that they are good at playing chess. So, we continue the hobby of our grandfather or uncle on the thinking of strategy chess. Chess is a very nice hobby, it train your brain to twist for the strategy. As you think a lot, the brain will working a lot so that the brain won't be lazy and become stupid.
Shogi need to think triple times for your every moves. Everything is possible in shogi. Even you exchange a major piece for a minor piece. It doesn't mean that you are losing, but is determine depend on who can checkmate the opponent's king first due to the 'drop' rules. So, shogi is the most exciting and challenging chess in the world so far. That's why I love shogi. ^_^
