If large teams were playing on many boards, like a tall skyscraper, there could be both local and express elevators.

What if you had the setups on each successive board be rotated 90 degrees clockwise (or counter-clockwise)? You could call it 'Twisted Elevator Chess' or something.

I could see times when you might send a piece up or down the elevator just to clear an attack lane.

Great idea. Anyways, it would be interesting to have pieces which elevate through the windows...

A problem: if the players have the move on two different boards, and both decides that they must wait for something on the other board to happen before moving on this one, is it a stalemate?
