Well I have recently submitted a variant using FIDE pieces with their square-board definitions on a 3d board on which the ranks are hex boards on their sides, to preserve the square-board change-of-rank requirements as with Quadlevel but through the nature of the pieces rather than any weakening extra restrictions. Thus the Bishop in that game has no move within a hex board. Since my last comment here I have finally discovered the meaning of the Hungarian Futar. It means runner, same as the German Laufer and Dutch Loper.
