Alice Chess. Play this classic variant in which pieces switch between boards whenever they move. (Recognized!)[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This is from Pritchard's Encyclopedia of Chess Variants. The game is between Paul Yearout (White) and Will Viveiros (Black). I included the comments after Black's 22nd move, because what it describes is possible only if a piece can block an attack by moving from the other board.

This and my prior logical analysis of the first rule settle the matter. A piece may block a check by moving from the other board.
