I've played chess ever since I was a kid and i'm addicted to playing online games. Recently I wondered why there wasn't so many asian players and unsuccessfully tried to find an active nip chess server. I did a bit of digging and learned about Shogi. I now know the basic rules and i'm interested in getting more deeply into it, but I can't find a good strategy guide online. Could somebody point me in the right direction?

I did some more digging and found a few decent surface level resources. Nobody on ubuu seems to already be into it, but maybe somebody else can get use out these.

A list of most of the few english books written on Shogi
First Step To Shogi
Better Moves for Better Shogi - Teruichi Aono

Guide to shogi openings - Teruichi Aono

Shogi - How to Play - John Fairburn

Shogi for Beginners - John Fairburn
Now out of print, but still available from George Hodges.

The Art of Shogi - Tony Hosking

Shogi - Japan's Game of Strategy

How to Defend in Shogi - Yasuharu Oyama
http://www.shogi.net/nexus/ukekata/index.html

At this point I can consistently beat the novice level on the ai. Despite the first part of the game apparently being about defense building, I keep getting floored by people online who all seem to start with an aggressive offense. Those are all ten minutes games. In my house I have chess books that are 600+ pages. Shogi is more complicated, but the websites above might not even take up 50 pages.

Not many people around, I tried getting people to play mahjong but nobody replied either.
I'm quite busy right now but I've been wanting to give shougi a try, so I may pop one of these days.

I saw your thread. I wasn't interested because it was completely unfamiliar to me and is usually played by 4 people. What made you get into that first?

Free time, and interest in learning how to play a game that involved some luck besides strategy. Poker and the like lack taste and feel like you rely way too much on luck, while mahjong involved enough strategy as well as luck. It also helped I had some mahjong games lying around, so it was just bound to happen.
I could have gone with chess or something too, but since I'm a weeb I thought I may as well learn weeb games.

I found a better online ai.
http://ken1shogi.sakura.ne.jp/shogi/shogi.html
The site always includes some other stuff. For practice problems, select, 詰将棋, in the settings. Piyoshogi is the best free app you can get, and that has thirty levels.

This is the best english youtube channel on shogi.
