Interesting.  Not long ago, I was consideding ways to make the Chess array symmetric, and I came up with the idea of having the king and queen remained undifferentiated until a move makes it so.  I believe my idea was exactly the same as David's game except that the uncertianty applies only to the king and queen.  (I was thinking about it in quantum mechanics terms as that was what I was reading about at the time - the king and queen are in a superposition of being both a king and a queen, and their wavefunctions are entangled so as soon as one becomes a king, the other becomes a queen.)
