Great information. Thanks for sharing. That's interesting that you mentioned wargames, and how there you can move more than one piece per turn.
In "Chess on an Infinite Plane" I've been thinking of allowing some situations where more than one piece can be moved per turn (but rather infrequently, and mostly only when the two pieces are in distinctly different locations, i.e. different localized battles).
I haven't implemented it yet, but your mention of wargames makes me think that there may be a rather large upper bounds for this. Good article!
