Crossover-piece Dual Direction Variants. Variants adding different moves in the dual direction to already dual pieces. () [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Well what am I to do when I get so many ideas? There are some that don't even reach the stage of being posted! There is a balance to make between putting variants too similar on separate pages and variants too different on a single page. Certainly A. Black's 'Shogi-with-one-extra-piece' variants might have been grouped rather than each having their own page, likewise M. Winther's recent series of links. The division into straight duals and crossovers seemed the obvious one to make as it took the most unfamiliar pieces out of one page altogether.
