Go with different pieces could be even more interesting with a <em>finite</em> number of pieces, such that the total number of pieces is less than the total number of spaces. The goals are then to use each piece where it will be most effective, and to seriously avoid letting groups get captured. This also makes it easier for beginners to know when to end the game.

I hadn't noticed this before today, Just wanted to draw attention to it, re: our interest in chess - go combos.

Also, it links to Chego which takes the notion of drops to the outer limits.

Maybe you can play with mostly rooks, but each player also has a small (finite) number of knights, queens, bishops that can also be placed.

Maybe could be done this way. Dont know if it would work
Player can select any piece to put on the board, but as some example the amount of kings that can exist on the board can be only (2 times the amount of rooks on the board) minus 1
