This is a good alternative I can endorse(US Patent 5690334). A Grand-Chess-like array works to keep Pawns fully engaged, and the promotion option is less radical for chess purists than original FC100. I prefer conversion to F and R both always being available because they are so equal in value, and that simple alternative is always a tough choice.
