The Comment You're Replying To

If you want to streamline Braves further, you can make it be so that a player wins a minor victory seen in Kinglet chess, that being the first player to have all their pawns eliminated loses the game.  This should streamline the rules even more than normal.  So, a player who thinks they can't win by checkmate, can end the game by capturing enemy pawns.

You could also count up the differences between pawns on sides and award 1/8 point for each pawn you have left.  If you happen to end up eliminating all of your opponent's pawns, and you have 3 pawns left, you are given 3/8 points.
