A simple solution to putting yourself in check seems obvious to me. Since it is illegal to put yourself in check in all other chess games, why not make that an illegal move in this one? This also gave me the idea of moving one of your own pawns forward each move in addition to a legal move. Perhaps it could be optional to advance a pawn each move if you like. Maybe there is already a variant like that or maybe it's a ridiculous idea...I don't know but I will test it out. I have just started to become interested in chess variants and had no idea there were so many, and so many that seem good.
