New Chess Variant by CouchTomato87: Shogun Chess

Newly implemented on pychess-variants. Each piece promotes differently. No piece can be dropped beyond the 5th rank.

Congratulations to CouchTomato87 on the implementation of his game! And ggs.


  1. I've also been exploring lines in the scandinavian. The early pawn drop makes the position much more powerful for black than it is in chess because the early attacks on the queen don't function as well as usual.

  2. Looks like a very interesting variant, pity Pychess has so few players. I hope the variant grows in the future!
