A radical adaptation of Shogi. Based on the conventional framework of Shogi, we innovate a cylindrical design for players to interact in a challenging way. It mitigates the restrictions that are intrinsically confined within the two edges of a Shogi board. The design grants players an opportunity to find an optimal placement and thus optimizes the flexibility of moving the chess.
