Hello Kevin
The aim of your game against oneself is not clear to me ! you should be more explicit about it from the start. You can always give advantage to one side !
I was ready to upload an idea different to yours but still similar, so I gave up.
The idea was to use one dice, each number referring to one piece (1=pawn, 2=knight, etc...), playing the best move on each side. The aim is simply to win ! if you can't with the remaining pieces, you lose (idea is old see §10.11 solo games in Pritchard encyclopedia).
you can also have a look at this (somewhat different):
