I sat down to play this today and the rules that came with the game are extremely vague. Does anybody know how to play this game?

I just purchased this game recently and decided to totally ignore the rules.

Try these versions instead:

3D Hook-Move Chess

Parallel Worlds Chess

Or find one of many 3D chess variants listed at chessvariants.org.

The box art is useless, and the rules teach the wrong game. (The rules are a pretty good technical description of how to play chess the normal way.)

But really, I think this is mostly a board with pieces. It's more of a gaming accessory than a real game on it's own. It's a nice board though.

Pick a set of rules online and go play!!

Probably the best set of rules to use with this board setup is Millennium 3D Chess. The rules for M3DC are well thought out and provide numerous examples of how each different piece moves. This ruleset simply puts the standard 2D Chess rules together with logical 3D movement. No tricks or gimicks, just straight forward 3D Chess!

Anyway, I've lost my original rulebook somewhere along the way and found the M3DC rules to be better suited to my vision of 3D Chess using this wonderful Chess set. The pieces are very light, which leads to problems if the board is jostled. I don't care for the pieces much, but they could easily be fixed by filling the pieces with silicone, or adding some kind of weight to the bases.

All that being said, if someone happens to have an electronic copy of the original rules for this game, I'd appreciate getting my hands on a copy.
