By the way, what is fool's stalemate in standart chess (shortest possible game, finished with stalemate)?

I think, this game should have rule that players cannot negotiate. I also invented one variant, wich have special outcome, both players can win. But instead special piece, wich makes this outcome possible, my game can optionally have queen, only variant with queen was tested, and even this variant appeared to defensive (recently i added rule, wich makes captures and sacrifices sometimes obligatory, this was not tested to).
But i like Black's variant (see comment below), it's excellent! I think, another one possible variant is 3-plaers game, unequal armies, one of players trys to prevent piece of 2 other players.

Maybe you can play this game with something similar to Kriegspiel rules with random starting positions.

this game's end might be a bit dull, but world peace begins at home!
