Pocket Shogi Copper. A Variant of Shogi with Copper General and Pocket.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

The rules and piece descriptions could use some more clarity. In the rules, you should probably say that this game follows the rules of Shogi with the following exceptions, then clearly give each exception. When you say "There is no demotion," some context would be helpful. Are you just talking about the pocket or making the more radical claim that pieces do not even demote under the circumstances where they do in Shogi? The description for the promoted Knight has multiple interpretations, and it should be written so that the correct interpretation comes across clearly and unambiguously. In the description of the Copper General, you speak of it promoting to a Silver General, but then you describe a Promoted Copper General that doesn't move as a Silver General.
