Aronson's Two Kings Falcon Chess is quite successful, I think. Falcon Chess Decimal II: Would perhaps be a more interesting variant if we were to simply replace the Falcons with Scorpions. That would be another way besides the 11 x 11 version in Passed Pawns, of acclimating oneself to the Scorpion move. My two cents: Falcons become overwhelmed on a 10 x 10 board which is why George Duke's Falcon Chess 100 is so clever, relatively speaking. Because it expands the board without overwhelming the falcons. I am very fond of the Energizer variants, but laboring through the Templar ones.

Btw, I am working on making some pieces for Complete Permutation Chess and should be done very soon.
