Shogi-of-Chesstonia is a 9 x 12 Shogi variant inwhich only pawns promote; and they can only promote to pieces which start out along a player's first rank [excluding King]. The piece set includes modern War Machines, modern Elephants, Knights, Ferz, Wazir, King, Queen, Dragon Horse and Dragon King. The 9 Pawns move and capture as do Shogi Pawns, but have an initial 2-step move option. Captured promoted pawns maintain their promoted status. /play/pbm/play.php?game%3DShogi+of+Chesstonia%26settings%3Ddefault-ji3 Should the above URL not be active, pleas copy-and-paste it into the search bar.
