In George Hodges' 'Ten Shogi Variants', Wayne Schmittberger states, in the
Tai Shogi section, 'A single Pawn, or other weak piece, advanced too far to
be protected can, under certain circumstances, be fatal in a game of Tai!' 

If this is true, then it's unlikely that Spinal Tap vs. Terror Chess has
reached the stage where there is so much material imbalance doesn't matter.
