Rules can not be substituted for ALL games: it can be subsituated to any
game in wich pieces starts on different halfs of board (for example, i
can't imagine, how to play Chaturanga for 4 players and Tafl, using such
rules), also there are probably many things, wich don't allow to play some
games, using such rules. But, i think, most of games CAN be played in this
way, and it's a very good idea. Also i can suggest game for any EVEN
number of players: half of players starts on halfs of boards, wich have
ranks 1-4, another half starts on halfs of boards, wich have ranks 5-8, and
all boards of 1-4 are coupled with boards of 5-8, when moving piece to
another half, player may choose either.
Also i have one small question about original game: i suppose, it's not
important, who have left king and right queen, and who have right king and
left queen :) ?
