Very easy to implement in Zillions. Replace all instances of 'Black' with '?Black' to make the black player move at random. You can also do the same thing with white player if you want to.

More ideas are to make only certain numbered moves at random (for example, only even numbered moves), and to add betting and/or doubling, and a method of scoring after a draw.
