Shogi variant on a tiny board.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Jonathan Rutherford wrote on 2007-09-27 UTCExcellent ★★★★★With the newer version of the rules, he should probably rename the 'rook' and the 'swallow's wing'. Since all the names are based on those of larger variants, I doubt a replacement name for the 'rook' would be hard to find. The new 'swallow's wing' would probably have to have its new name invented, as I doubt any other variant of shogi has the same move. In addition to this, I wish the rules for checkmate were revised and simplified a bit, though I admittedly have not tested any others to see if they are more playable. But these minor nitpicks aside, this is a wonderful game. I must admit that Georg Dunkl's games are incredibly innovative and he has brilliantly created some tiny little games. I hope that the Nana Shogi ZRF can be updated with the new rules, not to replace the old one (I enjoy the option of playing with the more powerful pieces) but simply as the new standard, with the older as a variant. Again, I highly recommend this game!
