Maybe, make variant, wich uses sets of diffirent games? For example, 9x23
board, pieces from European, Chinese and Japanese chess: European pawns
have duble step, Chinese pawns gets sideways moves on 5th rank, Chinese
elephants may go to 5th rank, but not further.
Maybe using games with different number of ranks is not good, better to use
games of same number of ranks, for example, European, Thai and Mongolian
chess or Chines and Korean chess or Japanese and Cambodian.
