This game is definitely not balanced. Black (Shatranj) will blow white (Shogi) out of the water, unless it's Deep Blue versus a complete novice. The two Lances are NO match for the Rooks, and I really question whether the Silver is more valuable than a Knight in the end-game. Cazeaux balanced his game by varying the number of pieces. We definitely need to bring back the Shogi Rook and Bishop if we're going going to get anywhere near balancing this game.
