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]

That sounds like a good set up, do you see moves occuring in the same patterns as I presented above, just wider in one dimention, or do you think that a more tradional, or even entirely new move system should be used? I'll draw up move diagrams with 4x1x1 pieces, do some calculations and see how it comes out, but I'm almost entirely sure that the pieces will come out stronger than they should be. It shouldn't be hard at all to do the same for tradtional 3d moves so I'll do the same for them.
