I know this would probably be very difficult to put into action, but could we have a tourney like that?
I think it's called bughouse.
It would be tough to put into action because of the programing involved, but also the rule conflicts. Since it's usually played as blitz, one cannot really wait very long to get a piece one wants. But in coorespondence someone could wait a very long time while their partener gets a piece they want. Though this could add an extra layer of strategy, it may make games last for a very long time.
But I'm all for it. It doesn't make sense to me that bughouse should only be played with really short time controls.
