A Pawn may not be dropped if it would cause checkmate, even if the Pawn is not the one attacking.
I've just realised, I didn't rate this page in my last comment. Either I forgot or it's grown on me since.
Can pawn be dropped between opponent's king and friendly cannon so what it's checkmate, but dropped pawn is not checking? I like idea, but i did not tried it.
I did have a similar idea: That the angle movers (bishops) are now Chinese cannons, instead, and the dragon horse can move as a Chinese cannon or as a Chinese horse. (I have never tried this, it is just a idea.) Also, Chasles Gilman has interesting idea, too! I like that too
Slight correction, I should have said 'a King or Gold or another Cannon'.
Actually it would be interesting if Cannons literally promoted - and demoted as well. They could promote/demote the intervening piece, if not a King or Gold - and not a piece that would be left unable to move. Players might think twice about making a Cannon move that would promote an enemy or demote one of their own pieces.
Cannons do not promote.
Do cannons promote? If so, what to?
