Hi H.G.

Do you know if this Shogi variant was ever played that much? I am curious since I've invented a number of 4D chess variants with many pieces per side, the largest of them being a 5x5x5x5 variant (5*4DChess) with 140 pieces (i.e. 70 per side). That is less than this Shogi variant has, and it has fewer piece types (14) than it, though my 5x5x5x5 variant has more board cells (625) than this old Shogi variant. It could increase my faint hopes that my largest 4D variant might be played even a little (if at all) at some point if this Shogi variant was ever remotely popular.
