This was the version I liked using back when this got a fair amount of play at game club.

You had a pool of points (pennies or chips worked well,) I found 5 was a fair starting number, but you could adjust as a handicap. Usually you started with 3 cards.

Each turn you could either gain a point or draw a card, max hand size was 5 cards.

When playing a card, you spent it's cost in points.

We found it gave you a lot of options, but kept the cards from totally destroying the flow of a normal chess game, just keeping them as shocking turns.
