    Dice?  That was already done with the earliest versions of the game in India.

    Here is a simple one:  Upon promotion, the new piece can immediately make one move.

    Wow -- that would make advancing pawns way more valuable.  Finally, the days of the foot soldier as cannon fodder would be over -- let's hear it for the proletariat!

    I really, really like the "secret passages to other squares" idea proposed by a member in this thread earlier. Like a portal or warp zone.

    Never mind. The more I think about practically using it, it seems like it wouldn't be any good. You'd have a perfect position until some weaker numbskull uses the secret passage cheapo to gain an advantage.

    Cue Nimzowitsch, "Why must I...."
