Here's a possible piece list for 'Identity Crisis'. Six choices for each
position, with enough similarities between the pieces to help conceal the
key differences. Let me know what you think...

For the Rook's position: the Rook, the Half-Duck, the Charging Rook, the
Fourfer (Meticulous Mashers), the Hasdrubal (Amontillado), and the
Howitzer (Cannoneers).

For the Knight's position: the Knight, the Waffle, the Woody Rook, the
Fibnif, the Knishop, and the Napoleon (Cannoneers).

For the Bishop's position: the Bishop, the Bishight, the B4nD (Meticulous
Mashers), the F2zF2, the Halfling-Bede (Amontillado), and the Carronade

For the Queen's position: the Queen, the Chancellor, the Colonel, the
Forequeen, the N2R4 (Meticulous Mashers), and the Hannibal (Amontillado).
