I think some clarification of the rules is required. I assume, if a piece is captured on the first move of your turn its twin is immediately removed from the other board b4 you make the second move of your turn. The rules say that the first person to capture the enemy king wins. I assume this means that check and check-mate do not apply, or do you play that you can only move into check if you are already in check-mate? Also, if a player captures a piece on the first move of his turn and removing its twin allows a (un)disclosed check on the second board you may simply capture the enemy king (and its twin) and win the game. Sounds like fun!
