What fun! The combination of more mobile and powerful pieces, combined with the rules for drinking, would make this a fun weekend pastime for several Chinese Chess players with some time on their hands! I'd love to try it (many large Chinese Chess boards have a Weiqi board on the back), but am not sure I can find six players in my part of the world, let alone with the time to learn the different pieces/moves, and the inclination... but if I ever do.... If anyone wants to try this, Yutopian is having a closeout sale on some Chinese Chess sets with 5/8' pieces.....
