Try having the Kings and Rooks move exactly three squares when castling. Thus 'White O-O-O' ends up with Kc1 and Rd1. Also, I wish Capablanca had given the simple and elegant promotion rule: to Queen, Marshal(l), or Janus of the same color. There is absolutely no need for underpromotion in these games - except to avoid the bother of borrowing a piece from another set.
