The strange thing I don't like well on this variant are two time two
different looking pieces with the same moves. The Elephant and the
Standard are the same as like the Rook and the Chariot are the same.
Additionally are the pawns on the C and on the J file completely
unprotected. To improve this game I would give the Chariot the ability to
step 1 square diagonally like a ferz. This will protect these pawns I
mentioned above. And the Standard would gains the ability to step 1 square
orthagonally like a wazir.
The new Standard equals to Horse in Shogi.
The new Chariot equals to Dragon in Shogi.
