He was winning fair and square using a brute-force checkmate and when I promoted a pawn he failed to take it or even move his queen out of range, subsequently winning me the game. At the vary least we should redo the end of that game.

If anyone has (or can find) his (Carlos's) phone number, PLEASE call him, even if it IS $15.00/minute for international calls!

Yes, I suspected that something had changed (I could tell in his playing style), but I couldn't put my finger on it. If the impostor took over his email account, said impostor could easily have changed the password and sent the "verification email". It would seem that this occurred some months back...

The image you gave is one of the board after set-up; However, the pieces in Taikyokushogi are double-sided. I have sent an email to the address you suggested. We'll see. The other thing is that I'm on a somewhat tight budget. I will get back to you as to Mr. Hodges. Oh, look! I just got an email that said that the message was not delivered as the address wasn't valid. If you know anything about this, please tell me.

Actually I am having to make my own board, hand drawing all the symbols on paper pieces, because no-one sells them in any way, shape, or form. Another thing is that if you google Taikyoku shogi in addition to a couple of images of your search,you will get a lot of images of Tai shogi, which is actually played enough to mention as more than a historic curiosity. Tai shogi is played on a "mere" 25x25 board, but the players still have to use tongs to reach the other side of the board. I was telling my grandmother about Taikyoku shogi, and she suggested that the reason that it disappeared and was forgotten about is that the "three people who played it died". There is no evidence that it was ever widely played. Wonder why. There is however one (1!) youtube video of it.
