In the variant: "moves along/across files" for the prince. Does that mean "along files and across ranks"? Cause this is a bit of contradiction and I see the prince piece as either a 2-square queen or a 2-square queen that cannot move horizontally in this variant. I'm hoping it's just a 2-square queen. Anyway I like the basic form and the variant where there are multiple kings. Feels like playing sho shogi again.
