Dear Jianying Ji,

I like the way you think.

If the pieces start on separate boards, at first sight it seems like a
better game, and I did not think of this, much to my shame.

Now I ask whether it is true if it is a better game when the initial
lineups are on different boards. Playtesting is chsting. This questions
must be solved by thinking, by logic.

If start same board, then go other board only to gain remote advantage
when returning to first board.

If start different boards, then go other board is banal invasion of enemy
territory.

This argument makes sense, but the truth of it requires playtesting.

Editor should include your suggested variation in main text. Players (if
any) can decide which works better.
