I usually keep a photocopy of this game record to show people some of the things I have to do in recording games. The original game record is on one page but what is special is that it was published using Chinese numbers, which is just a little pain to have to learn.

The Castle Games collection was published as a boxed set of ten books, with the traditional “butterfly” binding. I remember walking back into my hotel in Tokyo, laden down with books, and the receptionists looked a little curiously at them. When I showed them the Castle Games books (it was, I think, the only item I had which was new and not dusty and shabby) they were amazed at how beautiful the books were and that a foreigner would be interested in such things. One time in flying out of Tokyo I had a 30 kilo baggage allowance but my main suitcase weighed in at 40 kilos, mostly books. I was lucky that the airline was forgiving!

This game was played in 1771, and Satsugen had become Meijin just a few years earlier, in 1767. Thus, Lord Sakai of Iwami came within four stones of the Meijin. That's quite impressive.

But... while not wanting to disparage Lord Sakai, I have to wonder: was he really that strong? Or did Satsugen go easy on him, to avoid embarrassing a nobleman?
