Long-King Shogi


As Shogi, and you also have to put a Long-King in front of your King.


The Long-King moves like a Chess Queen but cannot capture anything except for the opponent's Long-King or any orthogonaly adjacent opponent's piece. If your Long-King is captured, you lose the game unless you can take a turn to capture your opponent's King, in which case you win.


(Same as Shogi except as described above.)
