People say normal torus dont work, because of the setup position. But on usual chess, the enemy piece is as far as possible from you. This not happen on normal chess setup with torus rules. An solution would be to have white on usual places, and black on 6 and 5 instead of 7 and 8. With this you would follow more the spirit of chess But then you would have an new problem, you have pawns that are some sort of wall, but on this variant you have this sort of wall on just one side.
