Parachess. Chess on a rhombus-tiled board. (Cells: 72) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

Tony,

This PARACHESS board of yours is one of the best I've seen!  I've long
been a fan of unorthodox varieties of chess, and have been fascinated by
hexagonal, circular, and three-dimensional boards.  Your Parachess board,
however, has a special quality that all others I've seen lack : it
bridges the two-dimensional and three-dimensional worlds, something I
thought impossible.  A piece riding on WAVES, for example, would bear a
striking resemblance to the Unicorn of some 3-D variants.

Keep up the good work, Tony!
