Óskar's 3dchess version 2

Introduction

My first version of 3dchess, Óskars 3dchess v.1 was not a good game. I knew that while I posted it. I continued to design, and this is what I've come up with: Óskar's 3dchess v.2.1 and v.2.2 .

Setup

v.2.1

a b c d e f g h +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 8| w | m | h | q | k | h | m | w | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 7| r | u | b | n | n | b | u | r | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 6| p | p | p | p | p | p | p | p | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 5| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ E 4| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 3| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 2| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 1| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ a b c d e f g h +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 8| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 7| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 6| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 5| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ A 4| | | | | | | | | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 3| P | P | P | P | P | P | P | P | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 2| R | U | B | N | N | B | U | R | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ 1| W | M | H | Q | K | H | M | W | +---+---+---+---+---+---+---+---+ Levels B, C, D are empty

Pieces

I use the same pieces in versions 2.1 and 2.2, except for the Dragon, the Archer, the Wazir and the Ferz.

(x=move and/or capture, c=capture only, m=movement only)

Pieces common in v.2.1 and 2.2:

King (K), moves one cube in all directions,

Notes

You must check out the prototype of this game, Óskar's 3dchess. Like that game, I have not tested any of this versions yet. If someone test it, please e-mail me and tell me how it went and if the game was playable. My e-mail adress is: [email protected]
