Jianying Ji,

I also find castling fiddly, but also see if you don't have it, protecting the king and mobilizing the rook is shorted.

I do believe the 8x7 board (Simplified Chess Board) does provide solid merit though, considering that Henry VIII Chess also uses it.  I also have Simpleton's Chess, which is like Henry VIII but simplier also uses it.
