An attempt to take the FIDE army further towards Shogi than Chessgi does. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Charles Gilman wrote on 2004-09-24 UTCThere is no double move as Pawns are promotable on the seventh rank and these rules together preserve the 5-step Pawn trek. There is thus no en-passant. Castling is a tougher question. Shogi has no castling, but then it has no long-range piece its own move away from the King. Xiang Qi is little help either, as that too has a rule automatically barring vastling: the General cannot leave the middle three files, which it would do if it castled! I have also failed to specify castling in the related Anglis Qi, and am interested to hear the thoughts of others on castling for both variants. By the way, I have now taken to writing HTML files, so if anyone can send me the Bishogi one I can start work on adding in hte info. I'll keep 8x8 as standard, but may add the 9x9 interpretation to the middle of the last paragraph.
