I think a variant of this game which requires you to capture both kings will be more interesting.

I'd suggest the following, if nobody else has come up with notation:<p> O-O for castling to the player's left. (At most one king can castle to the left on any particular turn, so there is no ambiguity.)<p> O-O-O for castling to the player's right. (Again, at most one king can do this at any particular time.)<p> OO-OO, or perhaps 2O-O, for the double-castling move.

How are the five different castlings distinguished in move notation?
