Medusa Shogi. Missing description (11x11, Cells: 121) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Fortunately L.L. Smith asked about castling in Medusa Shogi; sadly I
neglected to mention it.

Medusa Shogi allows for castling as follows:

a) Move your King 1, 2, 3, or 4 spaces towards the Rook on the desired
side.
b) Place that Rook on the square next to the King, and toward the center. 
Thus the left Rook would go just to the King's right; or if castling to
the right, that Rook would go just to the King's left.

Restrictions on castling are as in western chess.  The Medusa Shogi rules
have been updated.  Larry, thanks for that very important question.
