Women's Meijin title games

This page gives the title games (in SGF format) for the Women's Meijin (女流名人戦) title.

The first two years the title was earned by winning an (8-player) League, not by beating a challenger. In editions #3-20, the challenger was the winner of a 16-player knockout tournament. Since the 21st edition, the challenger is the winner of a 7-player league. For this main tournament or league, see the subpages linked to in the first column.

Komi was 5.5 until 2003, and 6.5 from 2004.

There was an earlier tournament of the same name (held twice, in 1973 and 1975), for which see here.
