I spent the last 12 months looking at the weaker pieces in games like Shatranj Kamil and Dai Shogi. The idea of some sort of 3D-Shatranj (with a weakened King) on a 6x6x6 board appeals to me. As for the traditional 3D-King with 26 possible moves, it seems even more elusive than the Royal Queen in Caïssa Brittania.
