The F3 problem is too great for this to be a good game. I hate to rate a game 'poor', but if not fixed,that problem kills the game.

Some of the combined pieces look a bit to complicated to me. I'd like some diagrams to help me understand these pieces. I agree with Tim, the pegasus sounds simply too strong. But I still like this idea, and would like to play it. I'm out looking for extra pieces...

I love this game! I've played it on Icelandic (where it's name is Hrókurinn, meaning 'the Rook' ) along with my friends. It is wery fun!!! Best of all is the different types of game modes you can choose from. Or you could just make up your own, which (should be) easy.

It is interesting but not good enough. You should work on it a little more.

According to http://taikyokushogi.hp.infoseek.co.jp/taikyoku.swf, this mark -|-|-|-> means 'may jump over three pieces on its way'. In this link, get the piece that starts at 20 32 out on the board and look at the forward-diagonal moves: it may move four spaces into the opponents start row, jumping over three pieces- or one, or two, jumping over one, or three, jumping over two.
