Moscow King Chess is quite a lot of fun, I think.  It's more or less
standard FIDE chess (at least compared to other variants) except for the
process of introducing pieces. To me, it has a touch of light heartedness
to it.  It takes a different kind of imagination, maybe. And there are
more opportunities to fork the opponant with the drop, bishops, knights
and even the lowly pawns.
