Matt, you are correct - if you are playing the White pieces, you are always
trying to win for White, even if you are making a move with the black
pieces. That is why you cannot make illegal moves. 

I do agree PFC sounds best for the other, original, Fibonacci variant. It
IS a progressive variant. As far as an improved name for my own, that's
tougher, as while it is one basic idea it has elements of many different
games (it's almost like a game of Double Agent, except every piece could
be a double agent!). Maybe it should be called Sequential Misdirection
Chess - as you will most likely 'mis-direct' your opponent's pieces at
the pre-determined move intervals. The main variant could then be
Fibonacci Misdirection Chess. 

Thoughts?
