Color Square Shogi



Mostly like Shogi. Board starts blank. But, before you start, each player has 20 black squares to place onto the board. Take turns placing these squares to any vacant space. Then, after all black squares has been put on, set up your pieces, 1 King, 2 Viziers, 2 Guards, 1 Chariot, 1 Bishop, 2 Knights, 2 Sweeps, randomly in your first 2 rows, and 9 pawns in your third row. Opponent mirrors this position.
