Actually, we already have those covered. I deleted their mention from the
original post because I thought it superfluous. Anyway, yes we will have two
or three boards of each of those games present and Michel is familiar with
all of them and ready to teach. Shogi sets are hardest to come by, however,
so if anyone has links to good places to buy them, let me know. We are
looking especially for sets that include the "international symbols" as well
as or in stead of the kanji - a sacrilege, I know, but useful when it comes
to teaching. Especially kids.
