An excellent game that anybody with a sense of adventure, a chess set, a
piece of paper, a pencil and an opponent can play.

Gives the effect of simultaneous play. The alternating movement phase
gives a whole new dynamic that is not available in ordinary chess.

The fear of a Vengeance move can stop your strategy in it's tracks.

Find that pen/paper/friend, and let me know how you get on.

Good Luck
