English Random chess could benefit from the Bishop Adjustment rule for
those positions with Bishops in same color squares:

I've created a new English Random Chess preset which provides automatically the random positions for both sides:

'This true randomization leads to little or no set opening plays. From the off each player has to think logically on the merits of their initial position.' - Benjamin Clarke

The extra 36 squares already ensure that. For a similar idea, see Chess on a 12 by 12 board.

I would suggest changing the name to something more distinctive, such as Decimal Random Chess. 'Random Chess' is already part of the names of other unrelated games, such 'Brand X Random Chess' and 'Fischer Random Chess'.

It is similar to Brand X Random Chess, a game of mine that may well be a previously invented form of Baseline Chess. Most randomized Chess variants have been done on 8x8 boards. I don't know if anyone has ever done one on a 10x10 board before. So this game may well be a new one.
