The idea of using dice to vary what moves are available would be most interesting applied to a 4-player variant with one player using the Pawn, one the Yeoman (Berolina Pawn), one the Point (Foot Soldier), and one the Cross (Stone General). The players with the divergent pieces would have the obvious advantage unrestricted, but who'd gain most with the dice added?
