Shogi hisha

The rook.


The hisha, or rook, meaning flying chariot, is the most powerful non-promoted piece in normal shogi. It can move as many spaces as you want (until a piece gets in the way or it captures) in any non-diagonal direction, just like a rook in chess. It promotes to Dragon King.

Chu ShogiEdit

This piece now promotes from the Gold General. It otherwise remains unchanged.
