Tenjiku Shogi. Four hundred year old, large, historical variant of Shogi.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I created a smaller version of Tenjiku Shogi, trying to keep all the essentials, but with only 48 pieces on a 13x13 board, rather than 78 on 16x16, posted here under the name "Nutty Shogi".

I have also been working on versions of Maka Dai Dai Shogi and Dai Dai Shogi on 13x13 (about half their size, "Macadamia Shogi"). The aim in all these cases was to reduce the level of complexity to approximately that of Chu Shogi, which is still a readily playable game, but give them the characteristic (and very different) feel of the various other variants.
