Fairy Pieces Part 1

This is a rules file for Zillions of Games, a Windows program that will let you play any puzzle or strategy board game you can feed it the rules to. With Zillions-of-Games installed, this rules file will let you play this game against your computer.


'Fairy Pieces Part 1' showcases 154 shogi pieces from all the old and medieval shogi variants, starting from 'Heian shogi,' which appeared at least as early as the 12th century, up to 'Tori shogi,' which appeared in the late 18th century. The full list of the shogi games these pieces are taken from and info on them can be seen on this page:Fairy Pieces Part 1

Screenshot below shows all the different pieces showcased. I have tried to make them indicate how they move.
