[vwjolzib] Shogi cards

Replace the standard shogi tiles with larger beautifully illustrated playing cards, inspired by Magic The Gathering, to make the game more accessible.  The cards could also be annotated with piece movement diagrams and kanji.  40 card deck, a respectable deck size.

Also needed are 81 short platforms, each the same size of a card, part of a large 9x9 board, onto which the cards may be placed, because placing cards directly on a flat surface leaves them too difficult to pick up.

Inspired by the "dragon king" piece, which offers imaginative possibilities for illustration.

Could be done for chess, though promotion is less interesting.

The Japanese game RRR is somewhat like this.
