Nobody comment it? I believe the author will be pleased to know visitors opinion about this twin form...

Peculiar twinning. Since there are two changes in every phase and five phases, one loses track of what is happening. Only when I set it up on the board I understood the cyclical feature!

It is interesting and should be analyzed and classified together with various types of twinning. When I find some time, I will
comment it and send an original with another type of twinning. I would write an article if time would allow it.

Funny, but I think the twin form is too radical, not speaking of boring play...

We living in constant developing century. Develops all areas of human life and in parallel all directions of art. All the time we have to find ways of development the chess composition. Not long time ago I was presented Albino Pickaninny realized with Queens. Though not all there was perfect but still the original idea. I welcome the composers who are trying to find something original. In my opinion, Mr. Radovich found an original scheme to enrich the Forsberg twins and it is commendable!

This sounds interesting. Can we have a look at that problem.

When the twinning is systematic as it is here, I don't mind at all that there are technically speaking two changes from each twin to the next. I also don't mind that the play itself is without interest - this is not a strategic problem. Instead, I'm happy that the solutions are all different, and very few technical pieces are needed. So all in all, I'm impressed.

To change the nature of a White and a black piece at the same time is not a new twinning device, of course. But the exchange of places from c to d, allowing us to come back to the starting point at the end of the chain of twins, may be a new idea. The effect is striking.

Nice idea : wQ moves like a Albino pawn, bQ like a pickaninny pawn. But the play
is not so good.

The could be only decoration effects as a result of "a marriage" between external and internal forms of a chess composition, IMHO. What is the final goal of this development - the form itself? Where is the essence (tactical content)? Awake, people!

Here is the problem with combined w/b Queens Albino and Pickaninny: prntscr.com/3dumbh
