I just wanted to mention that after submitting I found very similar variants, most notably Unachess and Parachute.  Still, I will leave this game listed as-is and maintain that these differences will make for an alternate approach to strategy:

- The king must be placed first.

- pawns can be placed on the first through fourth ranks, not just the 2nd through 4th.

- All pieces must be placed on one's own side only (ranks 1 through 4 for White, or 5 through 8 for Black).

- Checking your opponent or threatening his/her pieces during a drop is allowed.
