Group Description

Millennium 3D Chess*. This email reflector is dedicated to promoting, playing and analyzing three dimensional (3D) chess using the Millennium Three Dimensional Chess* rules. Everyone is welcome to share their comments and analysis of Millennium 3D Chess* games as well as to post recent games or to request opponents for email games.

Over the years, there have been numerous attempts to develop rules for three dimensional chess using three standard 8 by 8 chess boards (3x8x8), however, many of these games suffered from major problems that distracted the players from the essential characteristics of traditional chess. Some of these 3D chess variations created new chess pieces while other 3D rules imposed mandatory or unusual moves. In addition, these "rules" were generally incomplete causing inconsistent interpretations. None of these 3x8x8 variations offered a truly playable chess game.

Because of the lack of playable 3x8x8 chess rules, the Millennium 3D Chess* rules were written with the objective of extending the traditional chess game into a multilevel environment without distorting the basic game. To this end, Millennium 3D Chess* has not "created" new chess rules, but instead extended the traditional rules to allow for multiboard play. Other than the concept of moving between chess boards (levels), all traditional two (2D) chess rules apply.

You can download a free copy of the complete Millennium 3D Chess* rules from the "Files" section of this web page. Also refer to the "Files" section for a Beginner's Strategy Guide as well as an abridged rule summary. In addition, you do not need to have a three-dimensional chess board to play Millennium 3D Chess* as you can use an Excel spreadsheet program (or equivalent) to keep track of your email chess games. See the "Files" section to learn how.

Please note that you need to join this free group to be able to access the "Files" directory.

Most important of all, enjoy the game!
