3D Great Shatranj. A simple approach to 3D chess. (6x6x6, Cells: 216) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Higher dimensional chess variants are often noble experiments that never seem destined to gain much popularity. On its own merits this 3D one looks noble enough, in attempting to tame the chance of the players facing a large number of candidate moves at each stage of a game, in regard to their calculations. Is a 4D version of Shatranj in the works, or out there somwhere? That might be nifty to see, too. [edit: I'd forgot about the 4D Shatranj-like variant Chess on Two Boards by the same inventor, though it's stated on that game's page that it is a 'broken' game.]
