The strategy of chess with an element of surprise!

Imagine if piece on the chess board has a secret alternate identity. Is an advancing pawn merely a pawn, or really a queen in disguise preparing to attack?

With Deception Chess each player has two complete sets of traditional chess pieces. The base pieces fit within another set of cloak pieces, such that the identity of the base piece is concealed from your opponent. Any base can fit within any cloak. Pieces are moved according to their current identity on the board. At the beginning of a players’ turn they may remove the cloak from one of their pieces and reveal the identity of the concealed base piece.
