If you try this out, and have any problems, please let me know, so I can fix it.

The set consists of instructions, a board and all the pieces on a total of four sheets. The boards are based on one of my own Shogi boards, and the pieces are based on a leaflet published in 1980.

You will find the rules for this variant at: Shogi; on my own (elderly) Shogi pages at:; and also at:

I think I might do Dai Shogi next...
