I like your idea even better, progressive extra cost. Let's do it!

I'm just going to mention in passing that this variant has inspired me to think of a new 'time travel' variant too. Each move, you can either take all 8 of your moves or you can move up to 4 AND take back up to 4 points worth of most recent moves, either your own or your opponent's. Under this scheme, pieces that had been captured could re-emerge and (maybe even) move again! It would be strange indeed, but actually maybe less chaotic, in a sense, than Multimove Chess proper though it would be of course, harder to notate.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Block quote

Second paragraph in block quote

First Paragraph of response. Italics, bold, and bold italics.

Second Paragraph after blank line. Here is some HTML code mixed in with the Markdown, and here is the same <U>HTML code</U> enclosed by backticks.

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
