A very pretty game, more playable than absorbtion.

It gives me an idea a variant:

When one piece captures another, any DNA the captured piece has that the
capturer does not have is added to the capturerpiece, but any DNA that the
pieces have in common is removed form the capturer:

Rook captures Bishop = Queen
Rook captures Queen = Bishop
Rook captures Amazon = Cardinal
Cardinal captures Queen = Marshall
Knight captures Knight = nothing! (suicide capture)

I wonder how this would play?
