Summary: He could never best his father at Shogi.

He could never best his father at Shogi. For every move he made, his father had already thought out and prepared several counter-moves. He glanced at his dwindling amount of pieces on the board and then at the ever growing pile next to his father’s elbow. He sighed, tapping on a tile with the tips of his claws.

“Look for your opponent’s weak spot and exploit it,” his father said, his chin resting on his fists as he waited for Sesshoumaru to make his move.

Sesshoumaru stared hard at the table, the pieces becoming blurred images before his eyes. Then he saw something he hadn’t seen before. Picking up his tile, he could only hope that this move would be enough to finally win him a game.
