Should it be played on the intersections (like xiangqi or go), using flat pieces with roman numerals I to VI? And then mark the trap squares with stars or something, which is large enough to see even when covered by a piece. At least to me, this seem better than the chess board with animals on, due to the way this game works.

Is the name "Arimaa" made by "Aamir" spell backward?
