I added a photograph, edited some text, and approved this page. Although my magnetic set folds the wrong way for this game, I put the board on its side, placed the pieces on in reverse along the side files, and reversed the image, so that everything looks correct for this game. I'm not sure this game truly counts as a 3D game, because it does not have a third dimension of movement. Instead, it is a flat surface wrapped around a 3D object, such that there are connections between spaces on the edges that don't normally exist in Chess.
