One possible symmetric varant: Use all pieces and set up as FIDE chess. The king (one of the two T-rex each player has) is automatically considered general. Place checkers underneath to represent a T-rex having been hit once.

(Alternatively, use rooks to represent T-rex so that they can be flipped once hit?)
