I'm not really sure if this qualifies as a 4D variant, but I've indexed it that way to be as inclusive as possible.

If pieces couldn't turn at the knot, I would insist that it is 4D, but which is easier to explain here: four disjoint 1D boards with a glued square, or a subset of the 4D board with turning pieces?  (Note that in the 4D interpretation, the Entity's teleport power is almost the same as a 4D bishop's move.)
