Has anyone ever considered adapting Knightmare Chess to use with the old AH game "Feudal"? http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/847/feudal

It might be an interesting exercise to introduce cards to Feudal, but I think you would need to design new cards from the ground up. The Knightmare Chess cards just won't adapt that well.

Knightmare chess works by introducing randomness and throwing basic chess strategy out the window. In particular, it eliminates deliberate play, book knowledge and complicated plans. Feudal does not lend itself to deliberate play, book knowledge, or complicated plans, so what would be the point of most of the cards? In Feudal, the random setup provides novelty, and the first few turns are so bloody that there really isn't time to use card effects.

It's a shame.
