seonoo, you have miscalculated. the Chess (FIDE) army contains only one  Queen, so (5+3+3)+8+9=39. However, Advisors cross (and block) paths so often they are hardly worth anything more than Elephants, and Jocly's Shako rates Cannons at 4.9. Splitting the difference for Cannons (I they are weaker on 8.5x8.5 board, ((0.75x5)+(1x2)+(1x2)+(2x2)+(4.4x2)+(5x2))-1.5 for King weakness=29.05, but I don't know what the 3.75 is for.
