‘Chess – The Next Generation’ played online…

With the next generation of chess players playing on two boards instead of just one board, it would be nice if the game could be played online. I am a designer/programmer but I don’t have the time. I would hope that if someone was interested, they would take it apon themselves to create the online game. If there was money to be made, lets say in version 2 of the software game, then they could keep it since they created the game according to the rules of the game that I have posted. Of course I would be getting something too. If anyone has any thoughts concerning this please leave a comment, because the people who have played the game really love it! It would make the game more excesable to others anywhere if it was an online game.  If the software was to be created, it should look something similar to the picture on the left to start with, in other words being able to see all levels with both boards divided into quarters for easy referance. A second version could be made so that the game could be rotated up/down and to the left/right.

This two level game takes the same amount of time and same amount of moves as in a regular flat board game of chess. The only difference is, this one looks real cool and is even more fun when playing. One of my friends said that after playing a few games he was afraid he would never go back to regular single board chess.

AFTER playing the 1st game with both white and black on ‘A’ level, the Winner Chooses which level he wants to place his pieces (on ‘A’ or ‘B’ level). Then it’s the Losers turn to choose which level he wants to place his pieces. — In-other-words, for each game played after the 1st game, the Winner will always take the action first by placing his pieces on board level ‘A’ or ‘B’. The Loser of the previous game would then take action by choosing which level he wants to put his pieces on. The game would then carry on as normal with White making a move with one of his pieces. This really tests out how good of a chess player you are, because there will be different openings if White is on the top board and Black is on the bottom board.
You just have to try it to see what I mean.  J 🙂

This gives the Loser, a chance for a Rebuttal.
(no one likes to lose twice in a row)
