Just noticed this comment. Apparently Old Shatar actually starts with the pawns on the 2nd and 7th ranks. 1. d4 d5 is mandatory first move. Since Old Shatar did not actually have the Hia, I wanted to keep the game as close as possible to the original but, of course, add a Hia. Your idea, of course, is good. I did add a game in a comment, as an example game. I think the checkmate is very nice.
