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]

Well I'm not going to figure out how my moves would work with larger pieces
because I thought to begain with the biger pieces would be too strong, and
I guess I was being optimistic, because the the pieces would probably be
able to get to almost every square in one move.  On the other hand I found
the tradtional 3d moves gave intresting results: the bishop was far
stronger than the rook.

I think that an entirely new system of 3d moveing would have to be created
for 1d pieces to maintain normal values.  I don't think that I could make a
new one that fits well with the 1d piece, on the other hand you guys seem
pretty smart so maybe one of you can.
