Larry, Thanks for your appreciation ! Making up this variant, I was thinking of animals like chameleons that may use 'camouflage' with their environment (without acquiring any new property, you will notice) to flee danger, or on the contrary, may do so to catch a prey by surpise like certain fishes. In french it's called 'mimétisme' property, and I only found 'mimicry' for it. By 'mocking' do you mean imitate or make joke of ? By the way 'Chameleon Chess' already exists, but the rules are totally different (pieces change their properties by landing on particular squares)
