I think simplification is only possible by reducing the number of pieces (especially play with one King/Knight) and eventually make a smaller board. For example, six bishops, seven rooks and one king on the first two rows of a 7x7 board. It should reduce the number of required moves. A problem with only one King/Knight is that the King/Knight is required to eliminate pieces. The game concept itself shouldn't be simplified. That isn't even that complex. I'll test a variant with a smaller board and less pieces.
