    One ply = one move surely. Two ply = one move for each side. Which I think is what you meant. But I'm easily confused....

    1ply or 2ply is always the question. With 1 ply your fingers can break through and believe me it's a mess!! 2 ply provides more protection and a better wipe but can more easily clog up the toilet. So decisions decisions.

    Your version is right, I make a move, say e4, that is one ply, you make a reply, say e5, that is the second ply but together we call it one move.
