Idaidakama Shogi


Same as Maka Dai Dai Shogi, but Emperor, as well as doing what it does, can also move as a Chess Queen (to capture opponent's king). Also one new piece which starts in front of your center pawn, called a Cannon, which is same as the Chinese Cannon but cannot jump over any other Cannon.


Like Maka Dai Dai Shogi, but with drops allowed (including pawn-drop restrictions). Also, you may not make kings face each other vertically with nothing in between.


It takes long time to play
