It has the unused name "shogi board" and uses the dummy model, a white triangle with red Japanese text reading ダミー (damī, dummy).

Real-world information

Shogi, also known as Japanese chess, is a two-player strategy board game that originated in Japan. It is played on a 9×9 board, and each player has 20 pieces. The goal is to checkmate the opposing player's king piece, and each piece can be moved a different number of squares, similar to chess. More information on this topic is available at Wikipedia.
