There is a typo in the diagram - one player has no Silver - and by 'W'
you mean Lance, right?

Haven't tried it yet but it seems that the large number of long-range
pieces will overpower the game more than in Yonin Shogi.  Plus it doesn't
have the rules Yonin does about handling check and mate, which IMO is the
best way to do it - but on the other hand, entirely removing the pieces of
a defeated player from play seems like it might make the endgame more
interesting and help control the large number of long-range pieces. 
(Question: are the mated player's in-hand pieces also retired from play?)
