Gyaku-sama Shogi

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

Guaku-sama Shogi, created by Adam DeWitt, is a large Shogi variant based on Nutty Shogi and Hanten Shogi. Here is a collection of presets for playing Guaku-sama Shogi on Game Courier. Each preset uses the same settings file, and differ only in how they were customized to use different graphics. The presets allow pieces to be moved with the mouse, asks what pieces should promote to, enforce the rules, and spots fourfold repetition and winning conditions. However, they will not notify you of check, checkmate, or stalemate, since there are no rules concerned with these conditions in Guaku-sama Shogi. If you find any bugs in the routines used for enforcing the rules, please report them to Adam DeWitt.
