This work introduces chained arguments into a dialogue game for argumentation to allow a more natural and intuitive interaction with a respective system. Thus, the turn taking rules of the game are improved while still preserving the general consistency that is ensured by the framework. The improved system is used to generate artificial dialogues between two virtual agents which are assessed in a user study. The results show a significant improvement in the perceived naturalness without violating the logical consistency.
