I played few games with a friend and I kinda liked it. However, I felt that the starting position is a bit unnatural, did you consider different setups?

In one game we let the players decide, you could setup the pieces as you wanted (as long all the rules were respected) in the first three rows. White first, Black second, game as usual. In my opinion it was a better game because we actually managed to use the Hair.
