BattleBoard unveils new 3-D chessboards that promise: "Chess like 
you've never imagined!"

The crew of the Starship Enterprise aren't the only ones in the galaxy
with a 3-D chessboard on which to play the classic game of chess.

Las Vegas, NV - July 24, 2000 - Ten years ago, D.P. "Bracken" Bracken
was just about to fall asleep one night when he had a vision of a 
series of three-dimensional chessboards. Filled with excitement and unable to
sleep, he got out of bed and started to sketch some rough drawings of
the chessboards he had envisioned.

He then spent several years drafting up the plans, building the first
prototypes by hand, and searching for a suitable manufacturer to 
produce BattleBoard. His goal is to provide chess players with a chessboard 
that more closely resembles an actual battlefield.

BattleBoards will allow chess players to experience an added dimension
to their game of chess as well as compliment their favorite chess

The temporary Internet site is in place now at 
Once there, interested parties may leave their name and email address for
