Nice. I enjoy Wa Shogi. But I found 'Ganhi'(Flying Goose) can't be dropped. Maybe there is a bug.

By the way, I thought some pieces invented in Shogi variants are characterless and just like be crippled from original Shogi pieces.

For exemple, Climbing Monkey and Flying Goose are like weaken Gold General. Even if they are promoted ,they still can't do well.

If Climbing Monkey and Flying Goose could step one or two squares directly backward, they would have more power and differential features. I have no meaning to beef those pieces up like Superman. I just wish that they were a bit characteristic.

Likewise, Strutting Crow and Swooping Owl would be more characteristic ,while they could step one and two squares diagonally backward.
