Gyaku-sama Shogi. Smaller version of Hanten Shogi on a 13x13 board.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

A weakened version of the Tenjiku Fire Demon, but still having Demon character, could be made by limiting the burning to a maximum number of neighbors.

I like the idea of the Fire Demon capturing everything around it with either a more limited move, or if it did not instantly capture but had to stand still to capture everything, similar to the Heavenly Tetrarchs but with up to eight pieces.

Playing Tenjiku Shogi is highly recommended; a not-too-strong computer opponent that could be used as a sparring partner is available in the form of Jocly.

Thank you for the recommendation and the link. I have given this some thought over the weekend and will try Tenjiku again and learn how to play.
