It looks like there might be an error in the text due to translation into
HTML.

The sentences '(These make drops weaker, so a king can’t always hold his
bodyguards too close. However it also makes it impossible to mate a king
who has moved forward with a single drop. Maneuvering is more important
than dropping.-Pieces alternately promote and demote after every capture,
as in micro-shogi.'

should probably read as

(These make drops weaker, so a king can’t always hold his bodyguards too
close. However it also makes it impossible to mate a king who has moved
forward with a single drop. Maneuvering is more important than dropping.)

<bullet> Pieces alternately promote and demote after every capture, as in
micro-shogi. 


Otherwise the alternating promotion/demotion rule is easy to miss. ^_^
