I read your last post too late Joe, as I'm about to cut & paste a time consuming diagram of my 4D idea (i.e. still just a hexagonal shaped 4D board, with nineteen 2D boards that have 19 hex cells & are hexagonal shaped). I kind of thought you'd still dislike this version of a 4D hexagonal board due to the clumsy knight's 4D board tour issue concerning the 2D boards (hopefully I'm not breaking with a standard & strong convention for 4D variants that I'm unaware of). However, I still felt comfortable enough with it myself as it is, besides my not having to re-think everything, in making a different (and greatly larger) 4D hexagonal board-based game somehow work. It's possibly a good idea to move any further discussion of my shortly-to-be-posted diagram to my diagram testing thread, rather than continue it in the general Hyperchess4 discussion thread, if you wish.

Quick Markdown Guide

By default, new comments may be entered as Markdown, simple markup syntax designed to be readable and not look like markup. Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra. For a good overview of Markdown in general, check out the Markdown Guide. Here is a quick comparison of some commonly used Markdown with the rendered result:

Secondary Header: <H2>

  • Unordered list item
  • Second unordered list item
  • New unordered list
    • Nested list item

Third Level header <H3>

  1. An ordered list item.
  2. A second ordered list item with the same number.
  3. A third ordered list item.
Here is some preformatted text.
  This line begins with some indentation.
    This begins with even more indentation.
And this line has no indentation.
