I think this game has potential, but the rules as posted here are incomplete. What is does it mean to move a tower to the king's position? When a captured piece is moved from the hand to the board, does this take an entire turn, or is the player allowed to do this while making a normal move? On what squares can a pawn be placed? If a pawn is captured, is it moved back to the player's hand? Do pieces change side when captured (as in Shogi)? How does a knight move (first orthogonally then diagonally, or first diagonally then orthogonally?), so we can determine if a tower blocks the knight's move?
