The triangular cells on this chessboard make it very difficult to work out
lines of strategy by yourself, let alone play an OTB game.  This means
have to construct the pieces and the board yourself, which in my opinion
is more trouble than the game might be worth.

And by the way, not everyone understands Shogi.  I also found the
Cavalry's movement, though meant to be the equivalent of the Knight in
FIDE chess, was particularly difficult to visualize.
