George sadly passed away many years ago, but his widow Angela Hodges is still selling the stuff at that e-mail address. Not sure if they also did Taikyoku Shogi, though.

What, in your opinion, makes it fun to play Tai Shogi? I have never actually played it, but it has always struck me as an extremely tedious variant. it has a royal that is so powerful there is really no hope to catch it short of completely exterminating its army first. And that contains hundreds of pieces. You can ask for a price list.
