Thank you for your insight Mr. Reinger; yes the piece, or player has the option of moving their piece either across the level or through the 3D environment. One move, one direction; if you so choose you can move your King from (1) d1 to d2 on one move and then move the King (1) d2 to (2) d3.


Sorry, (LOL) the checkmate was purposely obtuse: Q (4) d4 and Q (6) h4 restricts the Kings mobility, while P (8) c6 has

free reign to Pc8Q, then Q c5+.


With all do-respect, one should make do with what one has, I’ve see many variants adding, changing, and augmenting the environment to meet their own inadequacies; chess had two armies of equal strength and you won or lost by your merits – please, let’s leave it (chess) the way it was (is).
