It has been suggested that this article be merged into Shogi. (Discuss) Proposed since March 2013.
Goro goro shogi is a 5x6 variant of shogi, or Japanese chess. The rules are identical to those of standard shogi, except that it is played with a reduced number of pieces on a 5x6 board, and each player's promotion zone consists of the two farthest ranks from the player. There are also no long-range pieces such as rooks and bishops.
There is a variant where each player has a knight and a lance in hand.
