I got an idea for a variant, but it is rather obvious, so I cannot imagine someone hasn't thought of it before. The variant is as orthodox chess, except that pieces do not capture by replacement, but can explode where they stand (which takes a turn), to destroy all adjacent pieces (friend or foe). I would call the variant 'Terrorissimo', as rather than warriors which jump their enemies to kill them in combat, all pieces are suicide bombers. It is not allowed to blow up your own King, even if this would take out the enemy King as well.
