Tony, This PARACHESS board of yours is one of the best I've seen! I've long been a fan of unorthodox varieties of chess, and have been fascinated by hexagonal, circular, and three-dimensional boards. Your Parachess board, however, has a special quality that all others I've seen lack : it bridges the two-dimensional and three-dimensional worlds, something I thought impossible. A piece riding on WAVES, for example, would bear a striking resemblance to the Unicorn of some 3-D variants. Keep up the good work, Tony!
