Multiple boards with simultaneous games are linked through central elevator squares.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]gnohmon wrote on 2002-05-01 UTCTwisted Elevator Chess is a fine idea; and the name Twisted avoids the nerdy connnotations of Helical. Note that a B going up one board changes color, but regains its normal color if it returns to its original board. Clearance by elevator is something I didn't think of, but it's a fine tactical element, and also perhaps a nice problem theme on the two-board game. Hilarity by express elevator might work, but I doubt it. The only fair way is to first announce to which board the piece is going (perhaps blindly) and then get up from your seat with the clock running and carry it there. If a collision occurs, same rule as always, you walk back to your own board and replace the piece and then are free to make any. Express could pass through blocked levels? Or had you pictured the mechanics of express more like this: the player picks up the piece, screams 'EXPRESS!!!', and then throws the piece in the general direction of a teammate?
