Behold Arcade Chess: Shogi, played by Commanders of futures to come as A Game Of Generals. This 9×9 Battle Grid is a didactic Gateway Game from 2 Player to Multi Player Miniature Mayhem and Madness in Mega War Games. Taught to Officer Cadets in the 25th century Star Academy.
“Learning How To Win Small, Leads To Being Victorious In Bigger Battles!”
Once again it must be mentioned; This Mini War Game is a By Product that surfaced during the game testing of the Miniature Game Mechanics. The working theory was if we (my son and me) could make this Mini Game fun and actionable; With 2 players pitting the Guardian Armies against each other on this claustrophobic close quarters combat battle grid? We were ‘Sure As Hell’ it would make a Great Game; Letting Loose The Minis On A Mega War Battle Grid!

The Shogi Formation
Arcade Chess: Shogi is the full scale deployment of an Army Division in The Arcade. As per standard: One Division guards the Harmonic Ring at each Octant, Color and Code of the Inner Sanctum. The Official Formation is 3 x 9: Which is formed by an Upper, Middle and Lower Echelon per division. (By extension: 3 Special Warrant Officers may be added per division during Mega War Games, putting the total of Battle Clones in the Guardian Garrisons at 240 units.)
