Traditional pieces, three players, on a triangular board.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Jonathan wrote on 2007-10-08 UTCNo problem--you deserve it. Let me point out that a change in position or in the nature of the move of the bishop will still not create a truly analogous piece. If the bishop still follows the path of the 'diamonds,' but only lands on those of the same color, it can only access a small fraction of the board's cells. The closest to a colorbound bishop that I've found on a triangular board is like a two space rook move in your game: ____ /\ /\ /__\/__\ I hope my little ASCII diagram turns out. Anyhow, a move from the first cell to the third cell provides a colorbound bishop move, and sort of looks like a form of diagonal (the first and third are still adjacent, though not orthogonally, or truly diagonally--I propose the term 'intragonal'). But for your game, I think the loss of colorbound bishops is fine. I recommend leaving as is. As stated before, it's impossible to truly create a perfect triangular equivalent of a square cell game, but I feel what you've done is the best version to date.
