One thought that occured to me was trampling rules. The four middle ranks start greener. However, any square where a capture occurs, is trampled, and is no longer greener. Any square that is constantly occupied for five turns ceases to be greener. Any square not occupied for five turns becomes greener. I think it an amusing idea, but alas a bookkeeping nightmare.
