We introduce the notion of the quasi-pfaffian which is a non-commutative form of a pfaffian and describe its properties. These are of interest because they are solutions to the (discrete) BKP equations, but, unlike ordinary pfaffians they offer the prospect of allowing solutions to the non-commutative extensions of these equations. We report progress toward this goal.
