If you like the Castle Games, they are now available in a new Chinese version. I have posted about this set in my blog.

What's the price of these volumes?

Are these available at any online retailer?

I see, thanks a lot!
Found it here: http://product.dangdang.com/product.asp ... arch-1-pub

The price is about USD 52.

Can a US credit card be used to purchase them? Will they ship to US, have others purchased from this company?

Of course it is nice to have a set on the shelf. Top shogi pro spent the entire winnings of his first shogi title on a second-hand copy of the book.

But some may not be aware that all the Castle Games are on the GoGoD CD, along with relevant articles and biographical data. Furthermore, it includes the new discoveries since Segoe's book. Mostly these are variant moves, but one known game was missed from the Segoe edition. This was the 1765-12-29 game between Satsugen and Lord Sakai, which was in the possession of Araki Naomi, who passed it to Segoe for a future reprint. Perhaps it is in the Chinese edition, which I haven't seen yet.

I've done it with a US Visa card, but the system is a bit fussy. Here are some things that may help you.

First of all, it's browser dependent. When I ordered (last year) IE and Chrome worked but Firefox was flaky.

When I ordered, after getting a "Verified by Visa" pop-up and entering my password, I got a message (in the browser) that my order could not be processed. When I left it alone after that, the next day I received an email saying that my order went through. So don't immediately give up if this happens.

After submitting my order, I received an email asking for the order number, the name on the credit card, and the first four and last four digits of my credit card number. This appears to be legit.

Surface mail shipping took about 2 months to reach the US.
