Games: Arimaa - a better chess?

Chess is a classic game, but to be really good you need to memorize lots of opening moves. One solution is Chess960 which randomizes the opening setup. Another interesting game is Arimaa, which can be played on a chess board and is easy enough to teach a clever 4 year old. Also, the game is easy to learn, but is designed to be tough for a computer to win.
The wikipedia site has some tactics and strategy, it looks like a very interesting game.
