As a nitpicking observation, the elephant's movement can't be hampered by
the central square anyway, nor can it ever use the magic carpets. That
information (that the central square can't be jumped) is only important
for the dabbabah's movement.

I like this variant a lot, still. I personally enjoy variants with little
power on the board.
