I've published this page now. Unfortunately, I could not figure out how to properly delete the other page (I'm the fresh hire among the editors), but I did manage to remove the link from What's New and search results.

I've added this game as a footnote to your Fischer-Benko Chess page. Do you mind if I delete this page? I think the games are close enough that only one page is required.

 By Gvndly. Chess Poker. Like poker, but players are dealt a hand of pieces instead of cards.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Assuming this is the game described at https://chokergame.com/rules/, I think it fits the bill; it is a chess game with a vying phase, or a vying game with the traditional "showdown" replaced with a game of chess. (Of course, since I am not an editor, I cannot see how well or poorly the original author has written the article. I may produce my own write-up; it is an interesting game, and I think it deserves a place on this site.)

I heard you are in need of more editors. I would like to join as an editor. (Posting this here because I'm not sure which email addresses get answered.)

If you want me aboard, send a message to the email address in my profile, which gets checked daily.

 Author: Hans L. Bodlaender. Sho Shogi. Historic predecessor of shogi. (9x9, Cells: 81) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The Japanese Wikipedia article on Sho Shogi also describes Asakura Shogi, which is the "missing link" between Sho Shogi and modern Shogi, played with both suizou and drops. To prevent complications, a captured suizou leaves the game entirely and may not be dropped; the same goes for the king of a player with a promoted suizou.

I think the existence of Asakura Shogi casts some doubts on the idea that the removal of the suizou and the introduction of drops are inherently linked.
