3FewShogi Chess

I invented this game because many people know Chess much better, and some peoople like Chess better, but I want to play Shogi as well, so sometime I might play like this instead!


Just like chess, but the Queen's Pawn and King's Pawn are replaced by Shogi pawn(foot-soldier)'s, and the King's Rook are replaced by Shogi flying-chariot.


Shogi pieces promote on last row only. When shogi pieces are capture, they can be dropped just like in Shogi, but Chess piece can not be dropped. Other than that, rules of Chess apply.
