Planar 4x4x4 Chess is played with pieces which are restricted to particular planes within the cubic field. (Any cell of a cubic field exists in three distinct planes, the XY plane (normally considered the level), the XZ plane and the YZ plane.)

Play begins with an empty field. Each player in turn introduces their King on an empty cell in either of three orientations; XY, XZ or YZ. either King may attack the other. Then each player in turn does one of the following: introduces a new piece to the field, moves a piece in the field or re-orients a piece on the field.
