Variation of Maka-Dai-Dai Shogi (ultra large Shogi). (19x19, Cells: 361) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Jonathan wrote on 2007-11-01 UTCGood ★★★★I've never gotten into the huge Shogi variants, but if I did, this would definitely be a good starting point. I really like the idea, and it can be applied to other large Shogi variants, or even an original chess variant designed for a large board. Very good, very clever. I, too, would recommend expansion, even if it just means copying and pasting a bunch from the original Maka Dai Dai Shogi rules. Abdul-Rahman Sibahi wrote on 2007-06-28 UTCIt would be nice if this page has some description of the pieces. And an English version of the Diagrams. Jeremy Good wrote on 2007-06-28 UTCIt's great that contemporaries are making large shogi variant contributions. Eric Greenwood also sent me one many months ago that I hope to post soon. Sean Humby wrote on 2005-08-02 UTCThat sounds like an interesting idea... however the intent of this variant was to appeal to those who'd like to see the fun of Maka Dai Dai without playing a single game for a week. Hishigata lasts only a little longer than a game of ortho Shogi, which is far more appealing to me. Now, a game this size really shouldn't have drops... you'd never stop playing. Additionally, the outside of the battlefield is sparsely defended, which makes for a game where the large peices can really open up. With dropping all the remaing peices it would be a bit too crowded and the game would quickly lose it's flavor. I don't mean to simply argue with you, but this game had three intents: shorter length, open space and violent conflict. But thank you for the feedback. (zzo38) A.
