Note to CVP editor(s):

I've just finished submitting a Game Courier preset for this (copyrighted) variant, with the permission of the game's inventor, who has been visiting CVP at times recently (he can be reached by his email that's given under his personal info, I think).

The King and Queen may use the triagonal (3D diagonal) in this vaiant.

Am I right in understanding that 'Standard orthodox pieces are used for this game, with their moves extended to three dimensions' means that the triagonal move is not used in this game?

My first reaction was 'Not two Kings again? Why, when not even part of a complete double set?' However, when I saw your rule about checkmating only one to win it all made sense. It is one way of tackling the perennial 3d problem of checkmate being difficult.
