Southwest Regional SHOBU Championship hosted by ENVOY

The 2020 Southwest Regional SHOBU Championship

SHOBU is a beautifully crafted abstract strategy game for 2 players. The game features 4 square wood boards (2 of each color) and 16 natural river stones for each player, in two colors, with a rope dividing the play area in half. Your turn is in two parts. First, a player may move one of their stones up to two spaces in any direction, including diagonally, in what is called a passive (or set up) move. Second, they take a more aggressive move, which must be the same direction and number of spaces as the first move. It is this second move that allows you to push stones across the board - or off the board's edge. Remove all four of your opponent's stones from just one of the four boards to win. SHOBU evokes the feeling of GO or CHESS but provides its own unique challenge. It feels immediately familiar and yet is wholly distinct and engaging. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, a seat at the first elimination round of the U.S. National Championship at Gen Con 2020, plus a free 4-day badge and a free 3-night room share (with up to 3 other people) at Gen Con 2020!
