A simple three dimensional chess variant. (5x5x8, Cells: 200) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]J. Fisher wrote on 2007-06-10 UTCGood ★★★★This appears to be a good 3D variant that maintains some level of simplicity, so would not be as intimidating for beginners and would retain some of the orthochess feel. Here is an idea for a Tower Shogi setup: L N Y X L X S G S N Y G K G Y N S G S X L X Y N L ...where x represents a forward-only 2x2x3 leaper, and y represents a forward-only 2x3x3 leaper. The bishops would be on ba2 and de2, and the rooks on da2 and be2, with the pawns on the row in front. To maintain the 3 space distance between the pawns as in standard Shogi, an extra file could be added.
