It seems that, like Wa Shogi, Heian Dai Shogi could be played very well with drops.

I can't believe that it's the earliest form of Shogi! I always was
thinking that first Shogi is like modern 9x9, but on 8x8 and without
'rook' and 'bishop', because it looks like other forms of chess, mostly
Thai game 'Makrook' (and, maybe, pawn capture from Chinese or Korean
chess): silver general moves exactly as bishop in Makrook, Shogi lance and
knight are 'normal' knight and rook, but both moves only forward, only
new piece is gold general, who replaced the ferz, and promotion rules looks
like promotion in Makrook (promotion zone is last 3 ranks, and pawns
promotes to piece, wich replaced ferz)!
Or Shogi, wich we know is only Shogi variant, based on chess?
If somebody knows it, please, explain me!

The move of Iron general may be wrong. In Heian Dai Shogi, 'èc«•ssŒãŽO•û' means Iron general also can step square sideways.

Lack of long range pieces on the so large board,  Heian-Dai Shogi is too  boring to play.
