Fair enough.  Although it isn't good practice to rename variants, the
other one really should have progressive in it's name.  Progressive
Fibocanni Chess is the most logical name for that game.

I still think you should keep the Fibocanni link in your name, so you can
make variants on other number patterns with the same rules.  'Fibocanni
Switcheroo' or whatever.

On the game itself, I'm still a bit unclear how the moving the
opponent's pieces works.  I understand when it happens now, but it needs
to be clarified how check works etc.  Are you always 'playing' for one
side, or are you trying to win with your current side?  It seems to be
former but it's not clear.
