Fwiw, I recall Putback Chess was called bughouse by some players when I played it with them in the 1980s in Toronto, Canada. Those players preferred to use 'Double Chess' back then for what is now commonly called 'Bughouse'.

I was disappointed there was no mention of what I've always heard called 'double replacement chess' where there are 2 teams of 2 players. Each member of the team plays a different color and when captures are made they are handed to the teammate to place anywhere on board (no promotions). This is played with 2 boards, 2 clocks and whoever wins (checkmate or time), their team wins. Great game!
