A great idea and a great story together with the traces of playtesting. This makes an excellent new chessvariant.

Of course, a cooperative game can be regarded as a puzzle for one player only (fighting againts the dice), but my experience (from playing Rengo) shows that reading the partner's ideas adds another twist to a game.
