. Missing description

Author: Larry L. Smith. Inventor: Gary K. Gifford.


After L.L. Smith suggested that the pawns (swords) in Gary K. Gifford's Pillars of Medusa be moved to the 4th rank, Gary set the new board up for analysis and was suddenly hit with the idea of Medusa Shogi. He wrote the rules and Mr. Smith took off to make the ZRF. So, use your pieces wisely; if captured they will drop from the sky to be used against you. Beware of the Medusa, she cannot capture, but can turn your army to stone. And respect the lowly pawns, for each can become a Medusa.
- Gary K. Gifford, Jan 2006
