This is a traditional Japanese children's game, played using the pieces and board from an ordinary Shogi set. It is a simple race game with each player taking a pawn and starting in the corner of the board. Pieces travel only on the outermost squares of the Shogi board in an anti-clockwise direction. Each time they pass their start corner, they can be promoted to the next higher piece. The first player to get promoted to King wins. An unusual feature is that the 'dice' are actually the four Gold General pieces. A player casts the four Gold Generals and moves according to how the pieces fall. If the piece falls with the calligraphy facing up, that counts as 1 square. If the piece lands on it's edge, that counts as 5 squares.
