Does anyone play an app game called Dwarven Chess? I found Dwarven Chess in App Store and thank it one of the best chess variants I ever played.
http://culturedic.daum.net/dictionary_content.asp?dirView=no&Dictionary_Id=10008774&query=%BB%F3%C8%F1%B5%B5%B9%FD An old Korean chess book called è±¡æˆ±åœ–æ³•(ìƒí¬ë„ë²•), said that one kind of chess called small shogi(ì†Œìž¥ê¸°=å°å°‡æ£‹) have Crossbow(ë…¸=å¼©), General(ìž¥=å°‡), Advisor(ì‚¬=å£«), Chariot(ì°¨=è»Š), Horses(ë§ˆ=é¦¬), Cannon(í¬=ç ²), and Soldier(ë³´=æ¥), ì¡¸=å’). It mentioned no Elephant. Li Qingzhao (1084â€“c. 1151) said there were two Chinese Chess variant:å¤§è±¡æˆ² and å°è±¡æˆ² (å¤§å°è±¡æˆ²ï¼Œå¼ˆæ£‹ï¼Œåˆåƒ…å¯å®¹äºŒäºº). But no one understand them. I think this chess variant mentioned on è±¡æˆ±åœ–æ³• may be å°è±¡æˆ² in Chinese Chess history.
http://81dojo.com/news/ This variant of correct name is Open-air Shogi (é’ç©ºå°†æ£‹).
é’ç©ºå°†æ£‹(Open-air Shogi) , a modern Chu Shogi variant, could be played at 81dojo.com. See http://81dojo.com/kifuviewer144.html?kid=310224 http://koshougi.seesaa.net/article/310806950.html
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Shatar&oldid=527046805 I did edit.

http://chungilfarm.net/cart/data/file/picpic/00375_001.jpg http://chungilfarm.net/cart/data/file/picpic/00375_008.jpg Now , I know it is Korean Chess.

In Koreaï¼Œa traditional board game ìš©í˜¸ìŒë¥™ is very like Ashtapada. http://chungilfarm.net/youngcart4/bbs/board.php?bo_table=wood1&wr_id=10 ì „í†µë†€ì´ì…‹íŠ¸..-2 http://www.gababo.com/nori_view.html?thiscode=0201&idx=390
I think this only piece "ä¿¥" was made in Song Dynasty. For my knowledge, each players' Rook of Chinese Chess was both written as "è»Š" (not "ä¿¥") in early Northern Song Dynasty. Red player Rook was written as "ä¿¥" in Southern Song Dynasty in order to distinguish each player's pieces on single-color printing book.
I see. If you need more information, please ask me. åœ–å˜¿ is like that a skillful cat catched a mouse and played it.
"I wonder if it includes game scores that illustrate the differences of rules, variations, etc. " Differences of rules are just mentioned in text. He said there are different checkmate rules in different locations of Mongolia, players must discuss to use which rules before starting. For instant , checkmate by Horse or Camel ,or bare-mate is not allowed in some locations. Most pictures are åœ–å˜¿. http://truth.bahamut.com.tw/s01/201204/f55cf005eced18ba4e4d00bbc891aa3f.JPG http://truth.bahamut.com.tw/s01/201204/cc4642f8171262c5934a20bb03de9373.JPG http://truth.bahamut.com.tw/s01/201204/843a6d833bacf8e42a5fade77fd63000.JPG Before checkmated by White Camel, Black was under three consecutive Check. So White got three åœ–å˜¿. There are two records of old rules game in this book. Author played one in one town of Xilin Gol League in 3/12/1983. In this game, pawn reached the 4st row from the last row to promote to FIDE Queen and Author use Camel to checkmate and got five åœ–å˜¿. I have written three åœ–å˜¿ in Chinese Wikipedia. http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%92%99%E5%8F%A4%E8%B1%A1%E6%A3%8B "I wonder also if it describes in a more complete fashion the large versions of shatar that I understand are played on 9x9, 10x10, 11x11, 12x12 boards." Author never mentioned any large variant. I think that Hiashatar may be not appeared in Inner Mongolia. Author lived in Ordos City, Inner Mongolia of China. If you need this book, I would scan all pages of book for gift.
Mr. Ed, I could tell answer. It is called åœ–å˜¿. Recently, I got a Shatar book(259 pages). http://truth.bahamut.com.tw/s01/201204/d4213e2d4bfdda40a1e769bed6bdba49.JPG This book's name is è’™å¤è±¡æ£‹. http://trade.taobao.com/trade/detail/tradeSnap.htm?tradeID=162826843521964 This book was wrote by a passed Mongol man å½æ¥šå…‹æž—é’, and translated to Chinese by his son. å½æ¥šå…‹æž—é’ said some old rules in Shatar. Like 1. Open: There are two kind Open in Shatar. Chahar Styleï¼šTwo players must do double initial move with the kingâ€™s pawn. Ujimqin Styleï¼šTwo players must do double initial move with the Queenâ€™s pawn. 2. Pomotion: Pawn reaching the last row couldn't promote. But it could move diagonally backward one step. When Pwan reaches the 4st row from the last row, it could only promote to Queen(Called Tiger or Lion). However, player could decide another choice, but he must declare when his Pawn reaches the last row. When Pawn reaches the second row from the last row, it could only promote to åŠèƒ½è™Ž(Half Power Tiger) or called ç›®è»Šï¼ˆEye Chariot). åŠèƒ½è™Ž moves like Dragon King in Shogi. 3. Victory Point: He also mentioned an old rule called åœ–å˜¿ï¼ˆtuuxÉ™iï¼‰. I thank tuuxÉ™i is like Komi on Go. Player could make enemy left only two pieces(King and another piece) in the end . Then he must make starting check by Chariot or Queen and consecutive Check before chekmate. Before checkmate, Number of consecutive Check is Number of åœ–å˜¿. If player win by common checkmate like Chess, he only got one åœ–å˜¿. Player usually made enemy left One King and One Pawn for having time to put his pieces to good positions to make consecutive Check. In this book , author å½æ¥šå…‹æž—é’ wrote 100 End for example of åœ–å˜¿. Many åœ–å˜¿ are made end by Pawn's checkmate, few by Camel or Horse.

Hello Fergus Duniho. Please e-mail to Mr. Song(å®‹). He is Korean in Japan. [email protected]
In Changgi Association Tokyo Branch Rules, A Pawn must promote on reaching the 10th rank. A Pawn can promote only to a friendly piece (except for Guards ) that has been captured, and for which it is exchanged. Please See http://www.h2.dion.ne.jp/~janggi/tokyo%20new%20local%20rule.html
The Pawn (Chu) does not have a double initial step, with the exception of the pawn before the queen. The first move pawn as a double initial step is obligatory, but White player would choose the pawn before the queen or king: 1. If White choose the pawn before the queen, Black must also choose the pawn before the queen. 2. If White choose the pawn before the King, Black must also choose the pawn before the King. Please see http://www.nmgqipai.com/mengguxiangqi/mengguzuchuantongtiyu-mengguxiangqi.html
One of the best meta chess variants.
You are welcome. The detailed rules are still unknown.
