The setup section says "See illustration," but there is no illustration. One would be helpful to have. Also, the setup says nothing about the board. I'm presuming it's the usual 8x8 Chess board, but it would be helpful to mention this explicitly.

The name Disc Chess brings to mind Terry Pratchett's Discworld and suggests to me a game played on a circular board. Also, it's not the only game with disc shaped pieces. Chinese Chess is also played with disc-shaped pieces. I agree with Ben that a name reflecting the hidden information aspect of this game would be most appropriate. Something like Undercover Chess might work.
