When I was explained this game, I immediatly understood that I would have
had a lot of fun.
When I arrived home and started playing, I was surprising of how
interesting this game was. The possibility to create your own 'army', the
pillars... really Amazing

Alberto, the following paragraph is copied from a comment I made this morning. Would you be interested in making a preset for the game?

'The last game I'd like to look at is one I haven't played, Shuuro. It's
a commercial game that debuted here last week. For a variantist, it has a
very common weakness in using only the standard FIDE pieces and pawns.
[Maybe someday we'll be able to get decent variant pieces at good prices.]
Beyond that, though, it shows a nice bit of imagination with a 12x12 board,
roomier than most, and the slider-but-not-jumper-blocking plinths that are
randomly placed. The innovation of allowing knights to land on top of them
and stop as well as move 'through' them is quite nice and does a fair job
of enhancing the knights' mobility, and reducing the sliders. This looks
like it could be quite interesting, I'd like to play it. Can we get a
preset? [Maybe if I put this comment on the Shuuro page, where they'll see
it...] This is another game I would like to see shortrange pieces in, that
could move through or on top of the plinths. I'd also like to try letting
the players place the plinths deliberately, each player placing 1 plinth in
each of the 4 quadrants - alternating who goes first in each quadrant.'

Surprisingly enough, I think it's the best chess variant ever!

I like it! :-)

The plinths look like a good balancing mechanism for Knights on a large board.
