PiecesEdit

The thing about Transformers is that they, well, transform. This is intuitively translated[1] as piece flipping, based on Shogi's flat tiles, pieces in Transformer Chess are flat, and they can be easily flipped. This is preferred to using figurines, because figurines take a long time to manipulate, and you can turn a flat piece of wood asleep.
