This set is beautiful. I make homemade sets also, but none have been as nice as this one. Great job!

As i've found, it's a better idea to laminate this stuff rather than gluing it to thicker card. No warping then. Also, I've turned this into a magnetic set by getting some magnetic strips from the hardware store, sticking them on the back, and cutting around them.

Ed, I think you're right. I would be surprised if the designers of Navia Dratp are not Tori Shogi players. It remains to be seen what the ND piece movements are, and yet the diagrams ND uses would be perfect for TS.

I think promoting Tori Shogi is great and agree that the graphics on the site you mention are appealing. There is a do-it-yourself Tori Shogi set at http://www.hollandnumerics.demon.co.uk/pdf/TORI_SET.PDF with the traditional characters that readers may like. It is a pity that there is no venue for play of this wonderful variant in real-time on the internet. Games do not take long and the piece movements are distinct enough from shogi that it is a separate and quite worthwhile game. The fact that it has a handicap system like shogi is also appealing for play by opponents of disparate strengths. The Shocky II engine plays a tough game of Tori Shogi. I noticed the resemblance of board and some piece movements of Navia Dratp to Tori Shogi, although, ultimately, the resemblance seems slight.
