Indistinguishable Chess. Player pieces indistinguishable from each other. Board squares are indistinguishable. (8x8, Cells: 64) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I go along with the consensus. Incidentally mention of Shogi highlights the fact that a Shogi set could be used. Before anyone says 'not enough Bishops and Rooks' I should add that positional equivalence would be used to make best use of paired pieces (Silvers as Bishops for example). Even the Shogi board could be used, with the intersectioins rather than the interiors of the squares. This woulds all add to the cofusion, of course, which may be a good or bad thing.
