Piece movement reminds Wellisch hex chess: knight also moves 1 diagonally, king moves orthogonally only. There is no bishop in Wellisch chess, but this piece is actually not bishop, rather another kind of rook.

Shenshuai: sorry that i answered this comment only after a few years :). What is this 'ninja-pirate war'? Maybe, ninjas are shogi-like pieces? Or, even more interesting variant: board have many non-game spaces (sea). Most of pirate pieces cannot cross 'water', but they can control 'ships', and most of ninja pieces are leapers and they can jump over sea.

I wonder if anyone has created a version of this game that has to do with the ongoing ninja-pirate war. In any case, this game would not be able to be solved using conventional game theory. I might just have to refer to the books if i want to play using game theory!

On other issues, nice game, I enjoyed it (or maybe it was because I was the only player who actually had a working grasp of chess)!

Can someone please make a game that honors the ninja vs pirate war?
