Dimension X. Chess on two planes - one with the usual chess pieces, the other with spooky trans-dimensional pieces with strange interactions. (8x8x2, Cells: 128) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

To answer the recent question. 'Can pieces stuck in a web still check?' It really doesn't matter if we see them as checking or not. Because check is irrelevant in Dimension X. One wins by capturing the opposing King and a checking piece in a web cannot capture a King. As indicated in the Rules under '1. ...a King may move into or be exposed to check....' Have no fear of checks from pieces stuck in a web. Also, Cobras in webs cannot spit, crabs in webs cannot pinch, and effectively, Fide pieces in a web are not really checking.
