Great! You'v used the most intersting pieces from these games! By the way, maybe also use different pawns? On the other hand, game with is pretty playable if you have only chess set...

I concur with that. It has the advantage over Shanghai Palace of not using the same names for different pieces. In terms of play the FIDE King is also the Shogi Jewelled General, and the Xiang Qi Chariot also the FIDE Rook (the Shogi Flying Chariot differs in being promotable). Thus an army of only 14 pieces includes 9 FIDE, 4 Shogi, and 3 XQ pieces!
