Pieces on the top or bottom layer influence which chess pieces may move on the middle layer. (4x7x3, Cells: 84) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]George Duke wrote on 2017-03-12 UTCExcellent ★★★★★ A square that a main Middle board piece sits on has corresponding square in Above and Below boards. These locations (departure square) 'influence' whether a move can be considered or not. To make the move, it also must be legal within the Middle board. Sometimes the Above or Below two piece-types move their one- or two-square way, and other times they duplicate a Middle board movement. Rules may very well be interpretable (including moving opponent's piece) in all cases. Yu Ren Dong wrote on 2008-10-14 UTCExcellent ★★★★★I like this variant. I never dreamed of the desgin like it.

Jianying Ji wrote on 2002-10-01 UTCExcellent ★★★★★This been an idea I been thinking of for a while. It pleases me to no end that someone has made a variant along these lines.
