An interesting concept for a variant! On a Canadian chess message board a long time ago, someone asked if there could possibly be a variant with quite a number of impassable squares here and there in the middle of the board, and I assumed the idea infeasible, not imagining that a player might be able to move said obstacles around!

'DEF,LargeCV': Heretofore unrated: great game for all of its novelty, play-worthiness, clarity of rules. One-rank extension of board, and own-piece-adjacent swap with Stone, and no immediate reversal of a Stone step or leap -- these appear to solve any problems in the simplest way.
