It was very good to include this variant among those described on CV pages.  Play-tested variants, even when complex like tenjiku shogi, are the most valuable offerings on the CV pages, in my opinion.

I look forward to Dr Muller's development of HaChu to play tenjiku shogi; that would be most welcome in the absence of human, over-the-board players.

Another CV page presenting Colin Adams's exemplar games, study of opening theory for tenjiku shogi, and arguments for understanding what the move of the Lion Hawk is or should be, would complement this fine presentation of rules of play.  It is perhaps too much to hope that he will read this comment and add such a contribution.

I have always valued commented game scores as an instructive resource for learning how to play a variant better.  I remember Dr Gralla and Mr Carrillo produced some fine games of makruk that appeared on CV pages; it would be wonderful if that were a regular part of new variants showcased here.
