I have a few episodes sitting in my anime folder but I haven't started it yet. I'm also interested in knowing what anyone who has seen of it thinks.

I think it's one of the better shows of its type this season. A brief intro;

The story revolves around a young girl [Shion] who witnessed the brutal death of her parents as a small child. Since the incident she no longer is able to speak and communicates using her notepad. After the deaths of her parents, nearby neighbors adopted her as a daughter. Her new father is an expert at Shougi [similar to chess] and Shion is a prodigy at the game.

8 Years have passed and as Shion enters the world of Pros, her parents murderer once again comes back into her life.

Shion no Ou will no dought be compared to Hikaru no Go but the only real similarity between them is that the main characters have a developed interest in a board game. Once you get beyond that they're quite different.

This is on my must-watch-as-soon-as-it-finishes list :P

Do we get to learn how to play shogi from watching the show?

No, but not knowing how to play Shougi doesn't impact the story or viewing

You can finish it raw and get a general idea of what's going on and then watch it when the subs come out, then it's not such a cliff hanger.
