Missing description[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Ed wrote on 2004-07-03 UTCExcellent ★★★★★I think promoting Tori Shogi is great and agree that the graphics on the site you mention are appealing. There is a do-it-yourself Tori Shogi set at http://www.hollandnumerics.demon.co.uk/pdf/TORI_SET.PDF with the traditional characters that readers may like. It is a pity that there is no venue for play of this wonderful variant in real-time on the internet. Games do not take long and the piece movements are distinct enough from shogi that it is a separate and quite worthwhile game. The fact that it has a handicap system like shogi is also appealing for play by opponents of disparate strengths. The Shocky II engine plays a tough game of Tori Shogi. I noticed the resemblance of board and some piece movements of Navia Dratp to Tori Shogi, although, ultimately, the resemblance seems slight.
