hi. im doing lessons for level 38 and i’ve come across a little problem.
the games shogi 将棋 and go 碁 have different kanji and are completely different games.
but in lessons it says 棋士 (きし）is a shogi player as well as go player?
and 棋院（きいん）means go hall but not shogi hall (since thats not one of the synonyms)?
how does that make sense? is this kanji for chess piece 棋（き) used for both shogi and go? thank you in advance to anyone who can shed some light on this!
