 By Gary K. Gifford. Dimension X. Chess on two planes - one with the usual chess pieces, the other with spooky trans-dimensional pieces with strange interactions. (8x8x2, Cells: 128) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This variant is another nifty-looking one by Gary Gifford, albeit with a certain degree of complexity to the play.

This page needs a rewrite. I also keep seeing these:

Just finished getting thumped by Antoine in this delightful game. Congrats, Gary, you've created an 8x8x2 masterpiece here. Offbeat, intriguing, spare and elegant - all in all, a very nice piece of design work. Ha, you make it tough not to envy you. Keep up the good work. [Somebody told me that recently, and it needs to be passed on. You earned it ;-) ] Thanks for the game.

Intriguing. It seems to be a very original game, with opportunities for novice and more masterful chess players. I look forward to seeing some finished games.

ahhhhhaaa well i trust your opinion you know :) .. have to decline game
offer, not starting any new games at the moment, i was just interested to
know how the 'spider' play-tested, if it slowed down the game, but
looking more at the rules, and it finally sinking in, i like how the
spider/crab/etc don't move on fide board, and how they go from fide board
to x board. i see that dimension x is going well in score count for
up-coming tourney, so i think we shall see this game play-tested well, i
look forward to seeing the games.
anyway, looks terrific to me, well done.
