As the game of Rugby is to Football, so the game of Chess is to tschess.

Generally the idea of Fischer random chess is cool insofar as it's a bust to the King's Gambit, and every other opening ~ but it removes the player's sense of agency and that's a problem.
tschess is a game that applies the heuristic of point/piece value assignment and - with the standard board as an upper bound - give the player the freedom to orchestrate their configuration however they see fit. We've also got some fairy pieces in there to keep things interesting.
