From the Introduction:
"VR Parton's Alice Chess is a classic abstract strategy board game, one
with a very unique twist. It's played on 2 adjacent boards, and pieces,
when they start a move on one board, must involuntarily transfer to the
other board, into the corresponding square they stopped on, which must be
empty, or the move can't be made... And the knights become oddly
colorbound, because the forced transfer allows any particular knight to
attack squares of only one color [different] on each board. 

You can change this by adding a third board which is mutually connected with both other boards. Now, a piece may have a free choice of which other board to make its Parton destination board. And the odd total number of boards allows the knights to attack all the squares on each board."

Players are encouraged to substitute their own preferred pieces.
