I'm approaching 4ps and would like to play OTB at my chess club; however, sources about the rules vary and I am confused about the complete set of rules I am supposed to apply when playing it, particularly with team play (2v2). I know Mr. George Hodges wrote a leaflet about it, if anybody would share it here it would be great! or if you already struggled with such a topic you might enlighten me about it.
Thanks in advance,
This might just be a simplified version of the game, but I know Hidetchi talked about it in this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EcpCGDu1Bw
The game is called Yonin Shogi
It's also playable on sdin sdin.jp/en/browser/board/yoninshogi/
I don't know if this is the one, but I have a pdf of ten shogi variants by George Hodges including Yonin shogi. I can send it to you. or post it on discord.
@Galago Great, that's the kind of stuff I was looking for. It would be great to read it!
I had, of course, already seen that video of Hidetchi, Also I knew about the Wikipedia page and its Japanese name. Thank you anyway to everybody answering this post
I think the version called hachiouji yonin-shogi is better.
I'll post the link to the Ten Shogi Variants on Discord, and I'll setup a board of both Hachiouji yonin-shogi and normal yonin-shogi in case people want to play.
@Galago Can you post it on discord.com/channels/1066362202371657808/1066362203176972315 , which is the Chu SHogi Official channel, off-topic? I am not very used to discord. Many thanks
@shibamizo57 yonin shogi is definitely simpler, but I am not searching for a complex variant. I wanted something to play with my friends at the chess club, with fast games, and with few pieces. I tried it already with a couple of friends and it was fun! That's why I would like to find out "my" definitive set of rules for our casual games (and who knows, in the future, even small OTB tournys!)
