Excellent abstract boardgame. A simpler version of chess without all the pieces but all of the strategy.

the push and pull of this outstanding two player game shines after multiple games, the problem solving chesslike brain burnyness in a much simpler game.

Love the look of this game, as you play it. It some ways it's another version of "Kuba" but better.

Easy to pick up, hard to put down. I can introduce this game to almost everyone and get a good game out of it. But also not so simple that it isn't entertaining.

Lots of fun. A definite must own. Purchase this when you see it. The publisher has a history of limited runs. Simple and intricate. Very easy to learn. (As good as Tsuro) I found the presentation and pieces a little more budget than what I expect from Wizkids - I'd give it a ten if the piecesd were of a higher quality. The board is of very high quality why not make bits to match? However, fun to play and a great 2 player game to add to my collection. This is a great game for fans of chess, tsuro, deflexion, go etc...

Very tactical. Cool bits. It has a sort of Abalone feel sometimes, but it is definitely its own game. Lots of replay value here. Looks awesome on the coffee table...

Elegantly simple in design, yet complex enough to keep you figuring out strategies several moves in advance. Would have preferred if the pieces could have been made out of wood as well - the plastic cheapens the game feeling a bit.

A Zen-like abstract game somewhat reminiscent of moving the Rooks in Chess. I think Chess, Go and Abalone players would love it. It's a real thinker and although I haven't worked out any really good strategies myself yet, it can't be long before someone writes a whole article on just that. I'd say that keeping pieces together in the middle of the board and making a line of 4 (which can't be pushed) seems to be a possibility - but it'll only take you so far!

Lovely pieces - it's definitely a "coffee-table game" as well as a player.

I'm sure this will come out a lot over the years and my 7 year old son has already got a yen for it.

Quick and enjoyable. Kind of like a halfway point between checkers and chess in terms of strategy. The gameplay is simple enough to explain in about a minute and yet it allows for a certain amount of planning ahead to try and trap your opponent rather than just getting lucky.

Chess isn't for everyone and neither is Oshi, but I would recommend at least trying both.

Really enjoyable abstract. Some users' comments don't seem to fit this game; it seems they either didn't do their diligence in reading the instructions or really aren't the target audience for Oshi. It's not the shortest or fastest game out there, nor is it the longest or most complicated or involved. It's just an all around good abstract, and as a plus you can use its board to play Shogi, if you're like me and have a little box of wooden Shogi pieces lying around.
