This variant was inspired by an image of a four level 3D chess set from the 1960s Batman TV series episode 'The purr-fect crime', with Bruce Wayne (Adam West) thinking over his next move (vs. Dick Grayson [Burt Ward]). The rules they were playing by were not revealed in the show, and I decided to invent a game based on the image of the 3D set in the scene, using my own ideas for its rules. Note that White moves first on just 2 of the four levels.
