Description

"General's board game:" Native to Japan, probably untimately derived from Indian chatauranga. Played on a 9x9 board with the following pieces: Osho(1): moves one space in any direction Hisha(1): moves any number of spaces orthogonally Kakugyo(1): moves any number of spaces diagonally Kinsho(2): moves one square in any direction except diagonally backwards. Ginsho (2): moves one square diagonally or one square forward orthogonally. Keima(2): moves one space forward and then one space diagonally forward. Kyosha(2): moves any number of spaces only forward or backward Fuhyo(9): moves one space forward. Pieces are promoted when reaching the opposite edge of the board. Pieces are captured when an opponent's piece moves to the space it occupies. Captured pieces are held and can re-enter the game under the control of the capturing player. Goal is to capture the other player's king.
