I like this idea of this kind of game, and I like these rules.

But what is notation of the tandems (on a ASCII diagram, FEN, etc)? Perhaps it should be "T"? Could it work with TeX chess? What icon (such as, can you write a METAFONT program for it)?

You might also use flat checkers pieces for the pawn so that you can make it double or single easily.
