Default Twinmove Chess - a double-move variant that really works

Twinmove Chess - a double-move variant that really works.

The double-move consists of a pawn move followed by a piece move, which
is mandatory. There exist two variants of Twinmove Chess. In one variant
pawn moves are compelled, until there exist no more pawn moves, when the
pieces can continue moving without being preceded by a pawn move. Should
a pawn become free to move again, it is compelled to move. In the other
variant the player may forfeit the pawn move, and instead move a piece,
but then he has lost his double-move.

One piece move or two?

Never two piece moves in a row. That's why it works, and why it's not a
silly game.

Any resources or examples that show this in concrete situations?

I think it's well known that escaping from checkmate... or inflicting it is very different if players have two moves each. And the most common
measure to address that has been to take away the second move when a
player is in check.

So this variant allows two moves of a sort each turn, while largely
retaining the same balance as that of conventional Chess.

No, there isn't two piece moves each turn, only a pawn move and then a
piece move. In one variant, the pawn move is compelled (until he runs
out of pawn moves). In the other variant, the pawn move is optional.

If you don't own Zillions (which you should), then you can always try it
out on a chessboard. It is remarkable how well it works.

Sorry, I misunderstood Quadibloc. He obviously got it.

Yes: the fact that one of the moves is a pawn move is what makes it much more
similar to normal Chess in its balance.
