I am enjoying a game of this with Adrian Alvarez de la Campa, its inventor. It is very much like playing two games of Fide Chess simultaneously... but then there are those Dead Ringers (or Doppelgangers). And that aspect adds an important strategical/tactical aspect. For example, lose your King Knight on one board, he's gone on the other too. What might be a good exchange on one board, turns out to be bad on the other... so, now you must try hard to keep an advantage on both boards. Easy to play and still very challenging.
