Galachess has a bigger board, but still has the problem of a corner orientation and so of what 'forward' means for Shogi generals on this orientation. Also, what you do about the complication of pieces changing their move when they cross to the cruciform section of the board? Would you ignore it, or have pieces flip to other pieces of the same national game, or have orthogonal moves flip to diagonal analogues and vice versa, or what?
