One thing you might try to make this game a reality -- a virtual reality,
anyway -- is a freeware game engine designed for making card games on-line
called Thoth. The engine doesn't enforce rules (so it's no competitor
for Zillions) but allows you to have cards with backs, dealt in hands,
with artwork, etc.

I don't have the link at the moment, but Google does.

Interesting. I'm tempted to use this to get something that's been floating in <I>my</I> mind for years: Chess on Any (Large Enough) Number of Squares.<p> Pick a number of squares N and an initial length l ? N. Place the two kings at opposite ends of a line of l square tiles. Divide the remaining squares equally, with Black getting the extra square if N-l is odd. Add to each turn a 'Land Build' phase in which a player may place a square in an empty spot (horizontally or vertically) next to an already-placed square.
