Shogi Pieces – The Silver General

Next to the Gold Generals there are the Silver Generals. They are key pieces for attack and also for defense.

The Silver Generals are called 銀 (gin). They can move one square diagonally and also one square forward.

Promotion: When the Silver General promotes (once it reaches the 7th, 8th or 9th row) it can move the same as a Gold General.
