Doppelganger Chess

This page contains one or more presets for playing a game online with Game Courier, an online server for playing Chess variants by correspondence.

When you capture a piece, you remove it and its doppelganger (the same type of piece). When you promote a piece, you get to add its doppelganger, replacing a pawn with it (no queen promotions).
