> may it play a Bat on the 8th Please add to Rule Zero the following: '<H?>Drops and Placements</H?> In games where pieces may be dropped or freely placed, the following <A HREF=???>Shogi</a> rule should apply: placing a piece in its promotion zone does not promote it, and placing a piece where the end of the board prevents it from moving (for example, dropping a Pawn on its 8th rank) is forbidden.' Notice that I adopted the Shogi rule of not having two Bats on the same file; however, this generalization does not belong in rule zero.
