If variantists want to make faster game, they do play progressive chess!
Here normal progressive chess will not make game much faster, but instead
using arithmetical progression, one can use geometrical progression! It
means that each time player makes twice more moves than opponent just made!
Even terrible Taikyoku Shogi will be finished in a few turns!
By the way, there is one unclear thing: may player checkmate opponent by
dropping pawn between king and cannon (and not checking with paawn itself)?
