A bit belated response to the comment by Stephane:

'Hello Kevin The aim of your game against oneself is not clear to me ! you should be more explicit about it from the start. You can always give advantage to one side !'

I thought it was clear enough solitaire dice chess could at least be played by using chess, or other standard CVs, for starters. Note that any given CV may not give equal chances to all the sides that play, but in spite of that I'd observe that in a solitaire game of any sort, it is possible to easily cheat, if one is the only player playing oneself.

Hello Kevin
The aim of your game against oneself is not clear to me ! you should be more explicit about it from the start. You can always give advantage to one side !
I was ready to upload an idea different to yours but still similar, so I gave up.
The idea was to use one dice, each number referring to one piece (1=pawn, 2=knight, etc...), playing the best move on each side. The aim is simply to win ! if you can't with the remaining pieces, you lose (idea is old see §10.11 solo games in Pritchard encyclopedia).
you can also have a look at this (somewhat different):
