Technically the King can be considered both FIDE and Shogi (as Kings cannot be either captured to return from or promoted in either), and the Rook both FIDE and Xiang Qi (though not Shogi as it cannot return fromcapture or be promoted). Therefore the sum of the types of piece from each game - 3 FIDE plus 4 Shogi plus 3 XQ, making 10 - is greater than the total 8 piece types. Note that I have rated this game previously.
