Homemade Tori Shogi Set. Missing description[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I think promoting Tori Shogi is great and agree that the graphics on the
site you mention are appealing.  There is a do-it-yourself Tori Shogi set
at http://www.hollandnumerics.demon.co.uk/pdf/TORI_SET.PDF with the
traditional characters that readers may like.

It is a pity that there is no venue for play of this wonderful variant in
real-time on the internet.  Games do not take long and the piece
movements
are distinct enough from shogi that it is a separate and quite worthwhile
game.  The fact that it has a handicap system like shogi is also
appealing
for play by opponents of disparate strengths.

The Shocky II engine plays a tough game of Tori Shogi.

I noticed the resemblance of board and some piece movements of Navia
Dratp
to Tori Shogi, although, ultimately, the resemblance seems slight.
