So with the above thought in mind, how would that apply to 3D Chess? It would be called ‘3D Chess960’. It would be the same as Chess960 but it would be played on two boards as seen in the other posts below. There would still be 16 opening moves (that does not exist in regular 2D or on flat board game) but without the predefined possible classic openings.

The game would officially be called ‘Chess960 – The Next Generation’ (based on ‘Chess – The Next Generation‘) The game would look like this:

The pieces have already been placed randomly.

Take a look at the box being opened up and then the whole game being put together (sped-up).
