A step further further to shogi from chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Andy wrote on 2007-02-25 UTC'pawns can only be dropped on the penultimate rank' Do you mean that pawns can drop anywhere except last rank? I do not like rule that drops cannot give checkmate because mate with drop is such big part of shogi. If you want game to go in direction of shogi I think pawn promote to queen is too strong and not like shogi, maybe pawn promote to nonroyal king. Pieces going back to unpromoted when captured is good rule. Queens gain nothing by promoting, knights gain more than rooks or bishops, this is possible balance problem but possibly not. Good effort. Chessgi still has advantage it is playable with two standard chess sets. Chogi needs way to show promoted piece from unpromoted, but is not very big problem I think players could put checker under promoted piece.
