I've been working on a "time travel" chess game called "time portal chess" the rules are incomplete atm and the game is untested but when I finish the rules I'm going to ask for volunteers to help test it out. some of the main differences I've spotted between the two versions are -the trigger for a piece to time travel is landing on a portal instead of being next to a king -when a piece arrives that doesn't count as a move (a player makes a move with anything other than the piece that arrived) Future travel -a piece has to arrive on the same sqaure it departed on, if it can't it becomes "lost in time" -a player is allowed for a piece to be lost in time -if a king is lost in time it's not checkmate but is very vularanable to checkmate past -all pieces can travel back in time -a player decides early on to bring a piece back in time by placing it on an empty square -if it fails to arrive on portal (if the number of moves since it arrival excedes the largest numbered portal on the board) it's a "time paradox" the piece "disintegrates" (both copies are removed) -if the earlier piece is captured all 3 pieces (including the capturing piece) are removed because it's a paradox check and checkmate are a lot more complicated in this game for more info (like I say it's incomplete atm but I'm working on it) see http://timeportalchess.blogspot.co.uk
