Re: Smess -- I never actually heard of that one before. I had to look it up on here.

Games with chamelons reminds 'Smess'. By the way, it will be interesting
hybryd of chess with chameleons and Smess: ninnys moves as wazirs on red
squares, as ferzes on blue squares, as knghts on green squares and as
guards on yellow squares; numskulls moves as rooks on red squares, as
bishops on blue squares, as knightriders on green squares and as queens on
yellow squres.
What about this idea?

The typo about the board's colors has been corrected, and some explanation of piece positioning has been added.

Presumably 'red, blue, green and red' should read 'red, blue, green, and gold' - but in what order? Do they correspond to Dabbaba bindings, with one corner cell of each colour? If so, the piece with Chameleons on the green squares would seem to be at an advantage. More detail, please.
