Looks like it has possibilities. A lot went into producing this game, including applying for a patent.

Darter (2004). Handcrafted wood game pieces. "There are two categories of tiles: Impact tiles, which alter the course of the darter when struck; and Proximity tiles, which affect the darter when it passes through the tile's active squares."

Despite the earlier comment, nobody actually added this one.

More "Chess-like" than Martian Chess, this is my favorite Icehouse game.

An 8x8 board. Although it was sold as its own thing, I played many games on a chessboard back in middle school.

A hybrid of Checkers and Go, played on a chessboard. The "Guerrilla" player, using small Go stones, plays on the intersection points of the squares to surround and capture the enemy pieces. Meanwhile, the "Counterinsurgent" player, using checkers, moves on the squares to jump and capture the enemy.

Equipment required: chessboard, six checkers, and 66 small flat pieces (buttons, glass beads, small Go stones, etc.)
