3D Chess is an odd, yet interesting game for X11R6.

By default, Ubuntu comes with glChess, part of the GNOME game suite. It uses the venerable and solid GNUChess engine, but the 2D graphics, while functional, lack the flash common in modern computer chess games.

3 dimensional Chess game for X11R6. There are three boards, stacked vertically; 96 pieces of which most are the traditional chess pieces with just a couple of additions; 26 possible directions in which to move. The AI isn't wonderful, but provides a challenging enough game to all but the most highly skilled players.

3D Chess is an odd, yet interesting game. You have three boards upon which to play, a few new pieces, and no manual to tell me how the new pieces work!!! But this game looks quite cool though, a bit like chess in Star Trek. All it needs is a manual or a link to a website containing documentation. Also, there is no AI to handle this game, so you must have another person to play with. I also like the board names which are x, y, and z.

  1. The idea is that Trump is playing a different, more complicated game of chess, using multiple levels to outmaneuver his opponents who are stuck playing normally. His movements seem strange or downright awful when viewed with a normal chess game, however in a 3D chess game his movements might make more sense.
    The "chess game" is just an analogy of the presidential campaign.
