A step further further to shogi from chess. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Andy Maxson wrote on 2007-04-29 UTCAverage ★★★See. neither chess nor shogi has nonroyal kings maybe they can promote to goldrooks Emmanuel Baud wrote on 2009-05-14 UTCGood ★★★★That's interesting! It's rather a Shogi variant (with extra rook&bishop, only 1xgold, shogi-chess pawn move, no Lance, ...) Finding Shogi equipment is not always easy (boards and pieces). Here, we can enjoy reusing orthodox-chess boards, and kind of orthodox-chess pieces. But, on the other hand, there will be needed 2 sets of chess pieces (each with 4xQueens/Silver), and moreover 2xGold new pieces (that differ from Silver/Queen piece). You're saying that: 'Use the second chess piece set to represent the promoted pieces.' Like it was said before, promotion discs would be an easier solution But whatever, a second set of pieces is needed if you want to play 'black' against 'white', as captured pieces change their color. (oponents can't play the same color, because pieces rook+pawn+king+queen are not shape-directionnal pieces) The pieces set I designed can be suitable for playing it ;), with only one set of pieces and promotion discs (magnetized). http://www.chessvariants.org/index/msdisplay.php?itemid=MSeurasia-chessc Maybe that would be a good idea to make the Zillions rules for Chogi, in order to evaluate the 'playability/complexity' of such a game. 2 comments displayedEarlier ⇧Reverse Order⇩ LaterPermalink to the exact comments currently displayed.
