'ABC' This is a Chess from year 1998 having a Switch/Swap mechanism recently raised(Switching and Swap Chesses) just when Proliferation itself began to be encouraged. The rest of the rules and piece selections are mediocre on second look(we commented on this 3 years ago). Interesting Teleporter Pawns, whereever they reach, can transpose a same-side piece there and Teleporter itself returns to home row 3(or 8). Three of the five admonishments at the end are about Teleporting, so they are supposedly the key, such as always trying to keep a teleporter spot clear. Really with ten spaces it would not be a problem, so that is just some authors' filler. In all, the central idea might work well with a smaller set of available squares to return. See similarity to AFourriere's Jacks & Witches' Teleporter Squares, the squares being the sole mechanism there without necessary pawns.
