Go with different pieces could be even more interesting with a <em>finite</em> number of pieces, such that the total number of pieces is less than the total number of spaces. The goals are then to use each piece where it will be most effective, and to seriously avoid letting groups get captured. This also makes it easier for beginners to know when to end the game.
