This game is similar to ancient-European board games (Petteia, Lantruculu, etc.). These games are more ancient than chess. Some people think that these European games are ancestors of chess. And i think, that it's probably true. But i did not hear before that these games went further than India... So, this game was invented indepently from Shogi, just played with Shogi equipment. However, i think, it's interesting to play this with drops, like Shogi.
