As an aside, answers.com is just a mirror for Wikipedia. Here are some interesting Wikipedia articles on Japanese chess variants: Heian shogi Microshogi Minishogi Kyoto shogi Whale shogi Tori shogi (I actually contributed a lot to this particular article back when I was a Wikipedia editor) Yari shogi Sho shogi Cannon shogi Hasami shogi Hand shogi Annan shogi Unashogi Wa shogi Chu shogi Heian dai shogi Dai shogi Tenjiku shogi Dai dai shogi Maka dai dai shogi Ko shogi Tai shogi Yonin shogi Sannin shogi (This was discussed, but the rules were not detailed, in New Rules for Classic Games) Shogi, and, oh, for something different, Capablanca chess (The fact that my one and only Chess variant is on this last page has nothing to do with the fact I have added this to the list of Shogi games).
