Default In warfare, the arms aren't always positioned in the same way from the outset



snip


I remember someone saying that the best way was to put a panel on the line
where the pawns are exposed to your opponent as normal but the first rank is
hidden. Then each player would position the pieces on the back rank without
your opponent knowing where they are positioned. Then the panel is lifted
and that's where you start from. Your's sound similiar in a way.

It is obvious that FRC can never become a popular variant. It is the
random element which people don't like. But what if we were allowed to
relocate the pieces ourselves?

After all, in warfare, the arms aren't always positioned in the same way
from the outset. So, if the players were allowed to relocate the pieces
before the battle begins, then it better imitates warfare. This was how
Julius Caesar won the battle against Pompey at Pharsalus (48 BC). Read
