FYI...

According to the regulation tridimensional chess rules the board setup listed on this site were not correct. The setup of the board is: Black/Gold (lower levels going from the outtermost edges toward the 'middle' or towards White/Silver):

Attack board 1:

Outside: Rook | Pawn

Inside: King | Pawn

Attack board 2:

Inside: Queen | Pawn

Outside: Rook | Pawn

Main board lower level starting from attack board 1 side going toward attack board 2 side:

Knight | Pawn

White/Clear Bishop | Pawn

Black/Blue Bishop | Pawn Knight | Pawn

White/Silve (upper levels going from the outtermost edges toward the 'middle' or towards Black/Gold):

Attack board 3 (top of set in the same line as attack board 1):

Outside: Rook | Pawn

Inside: King | Pawn

Attack board 4 (top of set in the same line as attack board 2):

Inside: Queen | Pawn

Outside: Rook | Pawn

Main board upper level starting from attack board 3 side going toward attack board 4 side:

Knight | Pawn

Black/Blue Bishop | Pawn

White/Clear Bishop | Pawn

Knight | Pawn

In summary the knights go where the bishops are, the bishops go where the king/queen are, and the king/queen go where the knights are...in the sketch on this site.
