As I'm till now the only supporter of my game, I will keep on adding some
new features I hope will be improving the game. 
I added a new variant, 'Cross3DS', which preserves the rules presented
above, but put the pieces back on board side, black opposit to white
(like
in 2D) to protect them from side attacks. I felt free to add a new piece,
the Dauphin (french Heir to throne), which is no more than a King without
stake of loosing the game.
This corrects the missing King influence going from 2D to 3D (see rules
analysis).
