I truly like this set of chu shogi.  Recently I came across what seems to
be a chu shogi variant and wonder if anyone knows the rules:
http://shogi.me/blog/2011/03/kyushu-chess-championship/

The variant is played on a 10x10 board with some of the chu shogi pieces as
one can see in the second photo.  In the first one can make out pieces
missing from the second photo but that belong to a chu shogi set.  The blog
author questions whether the variant is the invention of the man in the
photograph.  It clearly is intended as a simplification of chu shogi, since
the board geometry and number of piece types has been reduced.  I assume it
does not use drops, since the drunk elephant is on the board, but this is
all guesswork.

I would welcome information.  Thanks!
