Have you heard of "It is what it is chess," where pieces' moves look like hearts, peace signs, smiley faces, and even the letters in the word "Chess"?

Upside down as well as right side up (as in diagram).

This is a great idea. We should make a piece set modelled after this!

Any volunteers? We could make a piece set for the English alphabet and a piece set for other alphabets too, such as Greek. This would give Game Courier variants a lot more to work with. Small letters as well as tall letters.
