  lostemperor: A person from each couple make two moves and than its the other's turn. They may not consult with each other about the moves. Here some pictures and more It should be kings and queens match and not versus. Note the American beauty (yes sir:).

  lostemperor: I've played this kind of (tandem) chess also. It is fun and instructive to see what your partner thinks (what can often be different than your plans).
Sep-21-03  euripides: Another fun kind is 'tag' where each partner move the pieces on one side of the board(i.e. K-side and Q-side). The last partner to move retains the right to move unless they announce they want their partner to move. This can be very frustrating for the stronger partner (or the side without play) but can also be quite instructive.

Feb-14-04  nasmichael: Fantastic idea for attracting attention. I would like to see this for scholastic play.

The article at ChessBase is very engaging. The love for the game put forth by the promoters is encouraging, and I hope American promoters can capture the same spirit.

  Dionysius1: Really interesting this. The rules as described at don't preclude teams chosing openings together in advance, but it seems they preclude confering on offer or acceptance of a draw. I wouldn't like to be the partner who resigned if the other one had seen a drawing resource. Scope for tears before bedtime!
