Rules

Red plays first. Win by capturing opponent's king. It isn't legal to make 2 kings blown up at once with one bomb. You also lose if you cannot move. When you capture a piece, put onto your bench. Pieces on your bench cannot be dropped like shogi, they can only be placed by moving a pawn past the end of the board (see 'Pieces' for details).

Notes

Tank/Bomb movement: These moves are the same as the Tank and Bomb in the Exotic Pieces applet.

Variant: Limited Range Guard Shogi: Same as Limited Range Guard Chess, except: Pawns promote to 1-General and un-promote when captured, and pieces can be dropped like in Shogi, including pawn-drop restriction.
