Interesting.  This game would be pretty resistant to computer play at least in the opening because the branching factor is so large.  For white's first move, there are 40 options.  For white's second move, there are 195 options!  It would require some special techniques to achieve any respectable depth, probably very similar to what is done in Shogi engines.
