Mark Thompson wrote on 2006-12-10 UTCThe author tells me (in a letter) that pawns cannot doublestep, and that the Shogi drops put promoted pieces back to their original form. So I guess that means a captured Prince (being a promoted Pawn/Berlin Pawn) turns back into one or the other when dropped.

Mark Thompson wrote on 2006-11-27 UTCIn Flip Shogi, when a Prince (promoted Pawn) is captured, can the capturing player drop it as a Prince, or only as a Pawn? Mark Thompson wrote on 2006-11-15 UTCThis page says that Pawns move as in usual chess, but it doesn't explicitly say they have the power of a doublestep on their first move. Since the board is so small I would assume that they don't. Does anyone know what the inventor intends? 5 comments displayedLater ⇩Reverse Order⇧ EarlierPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
