(8x(4x4), Cells: 128) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating] Charles Gilman wrote on Mon, Jul 5, 2004 06:14 AM UTC:Regarding rotating the pieces, ANY rotation swaps rouind two pairs out of top/bottom, left-rigt, front/back and leaves one pair alone. Changing ownership of an unpromoted piece swaps front/back and leaves top/bottom alone. Promotion swaps top/bottom and leaves front/back alone. Changing ownership of a promoted piece and simultaneous demotion (as in Shogi capture) swaps both and leaves left/right alone. Tnunelshogi intermewdiate promotion leaves top/bottom alone but swaps top/left/bottom/right cyclically. Regarding piece details what I keep off the page is name origins. I briefly describe moves here, but admittedly assume familiarity with two components and ability to extrapolate a third. Perhaps before describing linepiece promotion I should add a sentence (with suitable hyperlinks): 'Their respective short-range versions the Wazir, Ferz, and Viceroy do NOT occur as pieces here but are mentioned as their moves are added during promotion and are also components of generals.' Would this help or is something even more explicit needed?
