3D Chess, a Different Way of Looking at It. A scheme for a geometric translation of 2d piece moves into 3d.[All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

A couple of off-the-cuff ideas:

A rotation of a piece would count as a move (a la 3M's Ploy), but perhaps
should be limited in such a way as rooks remain rooks and bishops remain
bishops, etc.

Pieces could start at eight squares, and change size as a move.  That might
be interesting, because a shorter piece would have less influence but might
be able to slip through places otherwise blocked.
