Time Chess

Imagine a 6-turn cycle of turns in regular chess. These six "phases" represent times of day. There are three different types of phases:
  • Day = During Black's daytime turn, Black can only see Black pieces (day blindness)
  • Twilight = Both players can see all pieces
  • Night = During White's nighttime turn, White can only see White pieces (night blindness)
There are two turns, one black and one white, in each type. The arrangement is such that each player once a round has no idea what their opponent's last move was. This introduces a great deal of uncertainty to the game.
