History of Dimensionalized.com
( which has been up for:
This is a quick overview. )
I came up with the idea of
3D Checkers This version shows only 3 persons able to play, while another version shows 4 persons able to play in teams or everyone for themselves.
when I was about 10 years old For those who know Hamilton Ontario - it was on the mountain..
Later, while living in ParksvilleAbout mid Vancouver Island.,
the details were written down by Gary as I put it all togetherTop Left: The game was tested. - Bottom Left: The game needed another board.
Top Right/Bottom: Rules printed and game done..
Then after moving to Victoria (as seen in newspapers:
Times Colonist Victoria BC - (Vancouver Island). and
Saanich News This was also seen in Victoria on Check TV: 'Check Around' about the same time as it was on the Radio (Vancouver Island).)
I came up with the idea and devleoped
3D Chess for 4 players This version of 3D Chess plays 4 persons called "Chess - The Future Generation" during the time of "Star Trek The Next Generation"
and at nearly the same time,
3D Chess for 2 players This version of 3D Chess plays 2 persons called "Chess - The Next Generation" during the time of "Star Trek The Next Generation"
3D Shogi A man from Japan said if I made Shogi into a 3D Shogi game, he would take it to Japan and market it for me. -- I was young,... But I DID get the copyright.
(click for larger picture).
I did my research and sent away for, and got international copyright on:
- Chess - The Future Generation Chess - The Future Generation,
- 3-D Checkers The Next Generation 3-D Checkers The Next Generation,
- Shogi - The Next Generation Shogi - The Next Generation &
- Chess - The Next Generation Chess - The Next Generation.
After some time Went back east across Canada/US in a 1986 Westfalia
I eventually took courses in Java Programing and
web development and design hoping to get hired with these skills(as was promised).
Of course I needed to
practice my skillsA Show Page for some of my projects that I did.
so I created Dimensionalized.com to
show case Victoria BC - (Vancouver Island).
games invented Victoria BC - (Vancouver Island)..
I then used the website to practice using SEO
methods to get some of the pages placed very high in Google (#1 for: '3D Chess Rules').
This link is one of the original pages I created back in about 2001 or 2002 which included a Flash animated 14 move game:
Enough of History, Lets Get Started on 3D Chess...
- Start by: Printing a visual set of the rules (in colour) and for quick referance later.
- Then check the rules for more detail
which also includes a YouTube video and explains the points per piece (ie: Bishop = 6 points, Rook = 4 points). See also: 3D Chess photo gallery.
- Watch a 14 move game play out in Flash.
- Finally you might be ready to build your own
3D Chess Table to play on at just the right height.
- Then, after a while, when you're ready (and have about 4-5 hours), on 4 boards with four people (or two playing two colours),
“Chess - The Future Generation” .
This can also be played by 2 persons: White and Gold --vs-- Black and Silver.
NOTE: Make sure to use a coin (or white stone) to keep track of who's turn it is to move. Who ever has the coin, it's that person's turn to move.
It really messes up the game if you forget who's turn it is. It happens everytime.
If you want to play a game by email (one move each day would take about a month):
