When I asked about those variations of chess where the privilege of castling were extended to the Queen, I forgot to ask about those variations of chess that allow the King to undo its castling maneuver, and return the King (or the Queen) back to its point of origin. It appears that Slide-Shuffle chess constitutes a far greater departure from traditional chess, than 'equal opportunity' chess, where the King and Queen can repeatedly castle and un-castle, at their election, provided they have not otherwise moved in any other way.
