(8x8x8, Cells: 512) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Charles Gilman wrote on 2007-06-09 UTCGood ★★★★For me the planar pieces are what makes this game what it is. The Towers Game is just another variant using the same pieces as a good many 3d variants (including a couple of my own). A front rank dominated by planar pieces in number rather than just strength might be interesting. An interesting way to increase the range of planar pieces is to consider the Scientist a compound piece, as it covers two quite different kinds of plane, and the University and Spy as triple compounds. As the names seem to be the only ones for planar pieces I will stick with them and try to follow the theme, so let's call the Scientist a compound of the Theorist (where the diagonals are at right angles) and the Technician (where they are at 60°). For the additional compounds of one but not both Scientist components I suggest Base+Theorist=Study, Base+Technician=Laboratory, Theorist+Reporter=Reviewer, Technician+Reporter=Printer, Base+Theorist+Reporter=Library, and Base+Technician+Reporter=Press.
