It occurs to me that one might attempt to play Kriegspiel with Different Armies. Of course, you don't know in advance what army the other player has! If the armies must be chosen from a short list of predefined armies, the player who makes the first capture of a non-Pawn gets a big advantage of knowledge (in addition to any material advantage). Perhaps this makes it a bad game.
