Your array is certaily full of interesting patterns of (1) elemental radial linepieces, (2) elemental oblique leapers, (3) combined pieces, as shown below. Having equal numbers of similar kinds of piece is also clever. The castling is slightly odd because only it can be done with only half the Rooks. The main difficulty is trying to set up this game with eight standard sets of various sizes. Balancing sufficiently distinguishable different pieces against sufficiently indistinguishable similar pieces is hard. The size is also unwieldy. Perhaps the best thing is to make oriental-style pieces by marking 11 sets of Draughts with at least unridged side. (1) /\ (2)/\/\ (3)\ / //\\ \ / \/ \\// / \ /\ \/ \/\/ / \
