Does anyone know if this is going to be implemented?
This has already been implemented. You can use the feature by doing either of the following:
1) Create a game, select ‘from position’ as the variant and select any of the given handicap options under ‘handicap’.
Or (If the handicap you are searching for isn’t given under ‘handicap’)
2) Go to ‘board editor’ ( lishogi.org/editor ), click and drop or drag all the pieces you want to whatever handicap position you’d like to have, then click ‘continue from here’ and play to game.
You can't post in the forums yet. Play some games!
