Grand Turkish Chess (III)

Daniel Roth makes some interesting suggestions. But a game with slow moving Pawns needs to be played on a smaller board. Start with the 'Grand Chess' initial setup on a 10x10 board, replacing the Marshalls on the f-file with Dragon Kings and the Cardinals on the g-file with Dragon Horses. I think the shortest possible game is: 1.e3-e4, e8-e7 2.e4-e5, Queen d9-h5 3.King e2-e3, Queen h5xe5 mate.
