Dimensionalized is: . .
— To make something dimensional; to add HEIGHT to Length and Width.
The games we have come to know and play (Chess, Checkers, Shogi and others), are all played on a flat board with 2 dimensions, length x width. The pieces do not move up or down because there is no other board that is up or down to move to.
When we add another board to the games just mentioned and the pieces are able to move to another board, the game has become 3D or Dimensionalized.
Therefore we now have these games that have become Dimensionalized:
- Chess — The Next Generation
- Chess — The Future Generation
- Shogi — The Next Generation
- Expanded Checkers (basic 2 board 3D Checkers)
- 3‑D Checkers — The Next Generation
The first, third and fourth of these games take the same amount of time and the same number of moves as their regular counter-part. In-fact they are easier to play.
As long as you know how to play these games on a flat board or in 2D, then it will only take you a few minutes to learn the dimensional movements. In-fact, that is all that is really explained here is just the dimensional movement from one board level to the next board level. It will probably take you a 2 or 3 games, but after that many have said that they will never go back to a regular flat board ever again because from the 1st move you will sitting on the edge of your seat.
These games rely on all the regular rules and instructions. It is expected that you already know how to play these games. What is explained is the dimensional factor or how the pieces move dimensionally from one board to the next board. This all might sound or look too intimidating or difficult, however they are easier to play and a lot more fun!
