Large Shogi variant with new pieces. (9x16, Cells: 144) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Charles Gilman wrote on 2004-10-30 UTCA hyperlink to Ryu Shogi itself would be useful, to allow viewing of the rules of zones, promotion, demotion, and drops (I assume that demotion applies as well). I am certainly warming to the Gold and Silver dragons, and will mention them when I get round to an article on more complex asymmetric radial pieces, along with a sample of 3d extrapolations. The idea of pieces which are rotations of each other - Centre/Left/Right/Reverse Warrior - is interesting. I am considered the idea of rotated generals, replacing that suffix with coward (completely reversed), dexter, sinister, and in 3d chief and base as well. Am I right in thinking that the Leaping Dragon moves as a Knight in the usual sense? If so it would be less confusing to use the name Knight for that and some other name for the piece that gets promoted to it. I do not know of any previous variant with both pieces, although I have been planning to add some as 12-rank versions when I next update Mitregi.
