I don't see why this could not be played against a computer. Of course a computer will have zero handicap from this, but neither will an experienced Chess player. It would be more confusing and distracting if the pieces were randomy colored.

An next step could be to make all pieces look the same. You could play it with a draughts set. In the Xiangqi vesion of this, you could simply flip the pieces! :-) To play without referee, you could then let the player that grabs the piece first show the bottom, to prove that it is his.
