    I might try it.

    My new chess variant development has come to a grinding holt. It's "Chess Republica" , got rid of the Kings and Queens and replaced them with 5 Parliament pieces each side, that just hog the center and impede any center development. To advance any piece development takes about 20 manouvers of the Parliament pieces ... it's a very stragitey orinatated variant.

    You just said it took a very long time to work out where the pieces should be - care to elaborate on why the rook is surrounded by pawns on 3 sides and the king is on the 3rd rank?

    The original game of Chess remains in the centre of the board, hence the King in the middle. As I wanted to use 2 complete sets each, there were 4 extra Pawns that needed positioning (12 across + 4). Looking at White, I started with the Pawns on A3, and B3. On the other side they were on L3, and K3 (same set up for Black). A Pawn on A3, or L3 makes it very difficult for the Rooks on A1, and L1 to get into the game. The Pawns on C2, and J2 do not interfere with any pieces wanting to move (except as you mention the Rooks on line 3, but why would you be wanting to move these backwards?). The front Pawns in the middle pretty much become cannon fodder, and are usually taken early in the effort to get control of the centre of the board. If you are having a competitive game with your opponent, the Pawns on C2, and J2 become important in defending your line later on in the game.
