Expanded version of Shosu Shogi played on an 11x11 board.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Aurelian Florea wrote on 2019-05-26 UTC@Ilya Novikov The queen is already a strong piece to be droped anywhere on the board, but it still has the disadvantage of not being anything special in close combat so it does not have that much king capturing potential when the king is still well defended by friendly pieces. The lyon on the other is a monster on close fights. It sniper oppopens who cannot defend themseles (like silvers from lateral positions) and can also kill 2 which can come in quite handy in tsume situations. In chu shogi the lyon has plenty of midgame oponent as the DK and DH are not vulnerable to it. Also the castle is strong from the start by also having blind tigers and frankly just plenty of pieces around it. But a droped lyon seems to me still an unstopable force. Assuming regular king move of course. That being said I'm contemplating twice moving silvers or twice moving golds as an promotion option in a future variant.

Aurelian Florea wrote on 2019-05-26 UTCThere is a conglict between the board reprezentation in the picture and the boaard reprezentation in the description of the opening position. For example it is written that the side mover and vertical mover are on the third rank on d3 and h3 but they are actually on 8c and 4 c. The main rule of game articles on this website is that rules need not cause confusion. This is important! Ilya Novikov wrote on 2019-05-25 UTCGreetings, Mr. DeWitt! I wonder will version of this game with queens replaced by lions from Chu Shogi be playable enough? Also pity there is no mnemonic set of pieces for Futashikana Shogi. Sorry for my poor English. Best regards, Ilya V. Novikov. Greg Strong wrote on 2019-01-18 UTCUpdated and posted. Adam DeWitt wrote on 2019-01-18 UTCNote to editors: The site name for this page is incorrect.
