is it just me or does anyone else find it hard to concentrate when using the 3-D pieces?
i hate them cant think at all
i just tried a different color board( marble blue i think) and its great! it really makes the pieces less eye popping
i take back what i just said,i lost 2 games cause of the stupid 3d pieces
Its like any board though, it takes a little while to get used to "seeing" it.
im used to it. doesnt really bother me
i can hardly play properly on a real board, let alone using 3d pieces.
sad, a 3d being thinking in 2d.
It bothers be too.
i hate 3d
I have never used them actually, I just know they'd be bad, lol. I just like the classic pieces on a white and blue check.
i use classic pieces+blue marble board...really nice
3-d chess sets makes it REALLY hard to concentrate for me too.
I hate 3-d peices, I use the maya ones. (like the way they look)
It's not the 3d pieces - it's the 2d board they're sitting on.
I blundered a queen just becauseI used 3-d pieces
they really stink especially if you play touch move!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Wow, lots of hate on the 3D pieces.
I only use the 3D pieces, and any blunders made using them were NOT because of the pieces' style. I believe that 3D helps visualize things better when you move to OTB play.
Worth mentioning is that I'm using the 3D-Wood pieces on the Marble Green board, with board size set to Large.
I like them actually. I chose wooden pieces with the olive board. Seems nice to me.
what? it is pretty hard using 3-d pieces. i hate 3-d pieces
I don't even look at games, or problems when the diagram uses the 3d pieces.
Is there any chance that a 1300 rated player can beat a 2700 rated player?
