Shogi (将棋 shōgi?) (/ˈʃoʊɡiː/, Japanese: [ɕo̞ːɡi] or [ɕo̞ːŋi]), also known as Japanese chess or the Generals' Game, is a two-player strategy board game in the same family as Western (international) chess, chaturanga, makruk, shatranj, janggi and xiangqi, and is the most popular of a family of chess variants native to Japan. Shōgi means general's (shō 将) board game (gi 棋).

Shogi Perfecto iki (and its big brother Zen) is a beautiful edition of Shogi and a perfect pairing of Japanese and Spanish design where the pieces resemble the way they move. This lowers the entry point for new players, but also rewards the most demanding Shogi players with it's stunning presence. Both sets have been designed by Masahiro Nakajima and produced by Néstor Romeral Andrés.

Components for the iki set:  45x33x5 cm paperstock box, white bag for keeping the pieces, 27.2cm x 29.6cm board (including margins) made of 8 mm thick 'ice' acrylic with laser-engraved lines and cells, two side boards (Koma-dai) of 10.5cm x 11.7cm made of 5mm thick 'ice' acrylic, 41 pieces made of  8mm thick black acrylic, including an extra pawn. Those pieces that can promote have a pattern engraved on one side.
