I don't like this game that much. You have strengthened the royal and defensive pieces while decreasing the amount of offensive pieces. The Point is covered by the Rook, too, which is unlike Minishogi where it defends against the opponent's.

I was fearing that 1st move Cannon b2-e2 was always winning, but finaly Zillions computations showed that there were no such great advantage:
Red is not taking the Elephant(after rook exchange), as it is a trap...
Ce2,Ca5,Cxe6,Cxa1,Ha3,Cb1,Hb5,Mc5,Hc3,Cb6,Hd5,Cb1,Pa2,Mb6,Hc3,Cb2...

So it's a very interesting variant.

A very nice reduction of XiangQi.
