Hi,

In Goro-Goro Dobutsu Shogi it's not allowed to drop a chick right in front of the lion if the lion has no squares to escape to.

It's only the chick piece that's not allowed to do this. Any other piece can be placed in such a way. Why is this? Why just the chick?

Martijn

It is not clear why Uchi-fu-zume/Drop-Chick-to-mate is prohibited in history.

As in Wikipedia (Japanese); http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%89%93%E3%81%A1%E6%AD%A9%E8%...

"... some say it's impossible the lowest rank soldier kills his ex-lord just after changing his side. Some other say there're 18 fu(pawn) in Shogi and it's highly possible we capturing some in endgame, so finishing with it might break the game element seriously."
