I could not resist. I made a 'Remote Sensing 8 x 8' pre-set. The link is in the rules.

A Shogi board* (9x9) can be used by players who desire to play Remote Sensing with a real 3D chess set. Just use standard chess pieces, add a pawn per side, remove the Queens and add two other pieces for your Remote Sensor pieces (per side). However, since many do not own Shogi boards I have just included a setup for standard 8 x 8 chess boards in the Notes section of the rules. The 8 x 8 setup would allow you to easily play against someone in person, on a real board. Also, I can make a Remote Sensing 8 x 8 game-courier pre-set should there be any interest in playing that version via CV. If so, the existing rules can still be used. Best regards, Gary. *A traditional Shogi board will be a little difficult regarding sensing because the squares are all the same in color. 'Shogi-The Game with a Twist' has a 9x9 board with squares of light and dark gray, and plastic pieces with vector images and letters. It is this type of 'dual-colored' Shogi board that would be ideal for Remote Sensing.

Jianying Ji, thanks for pointing out the other possibility.  You are 100%
correct. I have updated answer 5 and have acredited you, accordingly.
Thanks again, it is much appreciated. - Gary

For question 5, couldn't the answer be that the white rook just moved from a dark square to a light square, say from d3 to c3? The result would be the same, the checking of the black king.
