To follow up on the comment Roberto Lavieri left 6 1/2 years ago, he and I did subsequently collaborate on Mortal Shogi, which was followed by Kamikaze Mortal Shogi, one of my favorite Chess variants ever. I never followed up on his comment here, because he also brought up the idea in this Mortal Chessgi game we played together on Game Courier, and we collaborated on it together in the comments of that game. While many people already know about these games, this comment is placed here for those who may come across this page first.
