Alice Chess. Classic Variant where pieces switch between two boards whenever they move. (2x(8x8), Cells: 128) (Recognized!)

Author: Edward Jackman and Fergus Duniho. Inventor: Vernon Rylands Parton.


One of the best games of the great V. R. Parton. It has been played a great deal all over the world for many years. The strategy and tactics are very different from orthodox chess, yet it retains an essentially 'chessy' flavor and can be played with simple equipment (two chess sets will do, or one chess set and a bunch of checkers to mark pieces on the Alice board). --Michael Howe
