What about this variant: throw dice (or coin) to chose, wich moves (orthogonal or diagonal) are allowed. If played with Carrera-like set (maybe, with maharjas), variant with 3 separate kinds of moves (orthogonal, diagonal or kight's leap) is possible.
Here it's intersting to combine pawns, berolina pawns, shogi pawns, stone generals and iron generals.
Checkmate rules must be chosen from other variants with dice (for example: 1. Win by capturing king; 2. Make any move when in check. 3. Throw dice for next turn).
