The Comment You're Replying To

If I were to reconstruct the game based on the material given, I would have
assumed it would differ from the rules presented on this page in two

Rather than cannons, there would be two rooks.  The rook is a piece which
is found in every historical game to date, and there is no reason which a
piece that 'resembles a castle' shouldn't be one.

The knight would not be able to move one space orthogonally (this might be
the result of an inaccurate diagram on Kisljuk's part, however).

As for the pawn move, since no information is really given, either a Shogi
or a Changgi interpretation would work, although the latter probably makes
for a more playable game.
