Chu Shogi Applet with Assorted Tsumeshogis

Chu Shogi is a historical large Shogi variant, and was the dominant form of Chess in Japan for many centuries, until the invention of piece drops caused it to be replaced by modern Shogi. This is an applet for playing Chu Shogi, based off H. G. Muller's Interactive Diagrams. The applet comes with an AI, a Position Lab, and a collection of Tsumeshogi mating problems, and plays by the historic rules.
