Quadd Shogi


Same as normal Shogi but replace each square with a 2x2 area (4 squares), each of those 4 squares containing the type of piece that would normally be in that square. So this game would have 18x18=324 squares, and 20x4=80 pieces for each player. Promotion zone is five rows.



Rules same as Shogi apply. You win when you capture all of your opponent's kings. You may never drop kings, and you may not have more than two unpromoted pawns of your own in the same column. Also you may not make a move that 2 kings of opposite teams face each others as rooks with nothing in between (telepotency).
