One thing to note...

Martian Chess doesn't care about color, but each player needs
three pieces of each size. So for a 2-player game, you would
need six pieces of each size. However in a single stash, there
are only five pieces of each size.

*** So you will need to get at least two stashes. ***

(You will then be able to play Martian Chess with up to three
players since you will then have ten of each size piece.)
