Taikyoku Shogi (Unlimited Chess) Playing Pieces
I have recreated a digital chess set for american-english speaking players based on Taikyoku Shogi. Each piece has easy to identify markers for rank, whether promoted or not, piece name, starting position, and movement diagram and measure about 1-1/4 square each. All in standard Black and White.
