Pocket Shogi Copper

Hello, I made a Shogi Variant.  If enough people are interested I am thinking of having a tournament of Pocket Shogi Copper, where I would pay the winner a price.  The price would be a cash price sent to the person via western union via email.  Due to management reasons, I would limit it to the first 64 people interested.  If you ever play this game, always play in symbolic mode due to a program bug.  Kanji is not available yet.  I could also use an assistant that is fluent in Japanese if the tournament ever comes to existence.

 こんにちは、将棋類を作りました。 十分な数の人が興味を持っているなら、私はポケット将棋銅のトーナメントを開催することを考えています。そこで私は勝者に代金を支払います。 価格は、ウエスタンユニオン経由で電子メールで本人に送られる現金価格になります。 管理上の理由から、最初の64人に限定します。 このゲームをプレイする場合は、プログラムのバグのため、常にシンボリックモードでプレイしてください。 漢字はまだ利用できません。 トーナメントが開催されたら、日本語が堪能なアシスタントを使うこともできます。

yevrowl, wow that was very nice of you to do that.  I think I may have a small issue.  The board does not show the pocket, and to me it seems that the started position is not documented properly.  In 1 picture you seem to have a bunch of prompted pieces in the 3rd rank.  Do you want to play a game with me to see how the game works?

efren, Hi.  No I have not spoken to Hedetchi.  Maybe I should.  The Kanji version is a little harder for me.  I don't know how to write Kanji, and it requires me to work with the web site owner for chess variants to set up Kanji.

had have you spoke with Hidetchi? (Kawasaki, Tomohide) the server owner & main programer ?
It will be interesting if you do to set it to play also here by 81dojo

Just read now the rules, and sound interesting. When will the Kanji version be available?

>>1  Agt

Hi Agt, just sign up at chess variants.  It is free.  That was the first web sight where I found out about Shogi.  You are right Agt, the copper does not have to promote when it reached the last rank.  You found a bug in the program that I now have to correct.  My id at chess variants is wdtr2, so I hope we can play 1 or two games in the future.  ** note the bug in the program has been corrected.

This looks very interesting, I would like to try it!
Just curious, why must the copper general promote when it reaches the last rank? Indeed it would still have a move afterwards (directly backwards). OTOH a pawn, lance or knight reaching the last rank would have no moves, hence the required promotion.

This is 81Dojo's web system for account and data management. The entrance to the shogi app can be found in the main site at
