The rating I really want to give this page is 'interesting'; not <b>Excellent</b>, <b>Good</b> or <b>Poor</b>, but interesting. <p> While the game L. U. Kisljuk describes is perfectly playable, I have real doubts it ever existed. Much more likely London confused a description of Shogi with Korea, and gave it a name often used for Korea at that time. Or possibly he was just passing on someone else's mistake. I've never heard any evidence that the Koreans played Shogi in the past, and this is the first 'historical' game I've ever heard of that combined drops and cannons. Remember Occam's Razor.
