Sorry, (zz038)A. Black, I didn't mean to imply that you personally were looking for a duplicate of chess. The second sentence in my previous comment was an attempt to preemptively answer an anticipated question from some as-yet undetermined 'you'.

Anyway, I believe you can set up a game of 'Chess on a Mass Transit System' on a chessboard or any other sort of game board.

I am not trying to exact duplicate chess. I just want to make it so it does not make all the lines mixed up everywhere. With a 8x8 grid it is easier to see the board

Yes, you could set up a transit system that'd work on a chessboard. If you want a more exact duplicate of chess, you should add 'Restricted' pieces that are only allowed to use specified routes.

Would the game work on a simple transit system such as concat(seq(seq(8*x+y,y,1,8),x,0,7),seq(seq(8*y+x,y,0,7),x,1,8),{64,1}) ? In this case you can play on a normal chessboard
