    3D chess can be Star Trek three dimensional Chess.

    The Official Star Trek 3D Chess Set consists of:

    • three fixed playing boards measuring 4 1/4" square, and

    • four "movable attack boards" measuring 2 1/8" square,

    that move throughout play of the game.

    There are a number of Chess variants that use 3D boards, though not many players consider them better or more interesting than the traditional version.

    The three most famous variants, including the one featured in Star Trek, can be found on the Wikipedia site below:

    yep, u just need to get used to viewing all the boards and keep[ing in imnd that the pieces interact wtih each otehr across boards. I'd prefer 2d chess just b/c it's simplier on the equipment, but is still complex enough

    you don't have to be a nerd to be good at chess or to enjoy it.

    you can't be a close minded asshole either...
