2020 Maryland State Championships: Shobu Tournament
The tournament will be a 16-person, multi-round tournament. The winner of this tournament will get a trophy, a copy of the game, plus a seat at the final round of the Northeast Regional Championship at DEXCON 23 (as well as a free badge to DEXCON 23)
What is SHOBU?
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. 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. Learn more about SHOBU.
A tournament for many players decided over multiple games.
