You call it 3D chess ...
I wonder about 3D chess. I am not sure why.
Mainly , I think about some sort of crazy-ass lava chess game. The pawns are some awesome color ember. The King is a neon yellow. But the queen is a dark charcoal. And I guess queen on color so you have to flip the colors. The rooks are a light grey porous rock. The bishops are forest green. The knights are like an infused opal-purple. The idea is still the same.
But the board is lava. Just think about how interesting pulsating lava would be off the board. The drips and all.
Just something I was pondering.
