Well I'm not going to figure out how my moves would work with larger pieces
because I thought to begain with the biger pieces would be too strong, and
I guess I was being optimistic, because the the pieces would probably be
able to get to almost every square in one move.  On the other hand I found
the tradtional 3d moves gave intresting results: the bishop was far
stronger than the rook.

I think that an entirely new system of 3d moveing would have to be created
for 1d pieces to maintain normal values.  I don't think that I could make a
new one that fits well with the 1d piece, on the other hand you guys seem
pretty smart so maybe one of you can.

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:
