Another question is whether this variant still has Castling. I can't see any advantage in it, but the King and its Rook are the right distance apart.

Is it ok that white can check on first move?

''The Pawns are omitted as there is no need for them.'' Deceptively there are still 64 squares.

Deceptively there are still the optimum 64 squares on extended 12x12.''The Pawns are omitted as there is no need for them.'' Promotion takes place by any one reaching an opposite starting square(to be ascertained whether mandatory).
