This is an excellent game: like Shogi is IMO one layer of complexity above regular chess. I suppose that because of the dropping rule, the endgame is never going to be reached really, and the board will be always relatively crowded. This implies that the pieces values are different. Here's my bet Regular chess: Q>R>B=K>P Chessgi: Q=K>P (they can be dropped on the 7th)>B>R Am I right? Regards Paolo Anderson [email protected]
