One modern variant of Chu Shogi, called Millennium Chu Shogi, is played on a more open board. 40% of the pieces are set aside at setup and held in reserve. Once during the game a player may drop one of these on any empty square as long as at least one friendly piece now stays in the enemy camp(promotion zone, the farthest four ranks of the board); otherwise only drop on his own camp(the closest four ranks of the board). If dropped into the promotion zone, the piece must dropped as its promoted piece.

The set-aside pieces are the Lances, Coppers, Silvers, Side Movers, Vertical Movers, Reverse Chariots, Kyrin, and Phoenix.

Captured pieces do not come back into play, and the rest of the game is played as in regular Chu.
