Imaginative!  I (and many others, I'm sure) have often thought of playing Bughouse using Grand Chess or Capablanca Chess or something in place of OrthoChess, but I've never considered playing Bughouse with two different games.  It's a fascinating idea.

Personally, I think it would be even more interesting to allow captured pieces to retain their character on the new board rather than morphing to fit the game being played.  I'd love to see Orthodox Chess played side-by-side with Shogi; imagine the horror on a Shogi player's face when his opponent drops a queen on the board.
