The Position Of The Chess Pieces On The Game Board: Uniform Verses Non-Uniform placements.

************************

Most people who enjoy conventional chess are familiar with the Single Set Game board and the arrangement of the chess pieces on the board.  Photo #1 shows an example display of a conventional chess game board using a Single Game Board Platform where the chess pieces are confined to the space of a single game board Platform.   In this case, the chess pieces arrangement is positioned in a Linear manner.


Photo # 1 – Shows the Single Game board Platform of a conventional chess game whereby the chess pieces are confined to a Single Platform.  The chess pieces position have a Linear arrangement.  By Advance Chess standards this Linear arrangement is considered to be Uniform since the entire Orange-Blue color band set rests on a Single Platform.  This means that both Player I Orange-Blue color band White pieces and Player II Orange-Blue color band Black pieces rest on a Single Platform which we may hypothetically call the Bottom (Ground)  Platform at Base(0).  The objective of a conventional chess game is to gain as many points over an opponent by capturing an opponent’s chess pieces and as in the case of a King, the capture or immobilization of this piece would be considered a CHECKMATE;  when this occurs the game comes to an end and the player who checkmates an opponent’s King becomes the victor.

In contrast to conventional chess, Advance chess uses the option of having two unique Single Platforms upon which to play.  Arbitrarily, the Single Platform that is viewed further away from your line of vision may be considered the Bottom (Ground)  Platform at a designated Base(0).  If this is the case then the Single Platform that is closer to your visual field of awareness may be considered the Top (Air) Platform at a designated Base(1). An example of this is shown in Photo # 2.

In this instance, the Platform upon which the chess pieces rest is considered  the Physical Platform.  As is the case with this chess game example, this game is considered to have a Linear,Uniform positional arrangement whereby the chess set positions at the Bottom (Ground) Platform, at Base(0).  Arbitrarily, the Platform that is void of any chess pieces, in this case the Top (Air) Platform, is considered the Abstract Platform.  The Abstract Platform is usually the corresponding symmetric vacant Platform which is empty and has no chess pieces on it.

In contrast to conventional chess whereby the chess pieces are confined to a Single Physical Platform, Advance Chess , in this case the Double Platforms,allows the movement of the chess pieces on both the Physcial Platform and the Abstract Platform.  The movement of the pieces may be interchanged on BOTH  Platforms and on an intermittent and spontaneous basis.  The nomenclature for the positional configuration of the chess pieces shown in Photo # 2  is considered as the GROUND-TO-GROUND ,symbolically shown as (G-G), arrangement.  The reason for this is because BOTH  Player I and Player II chess pieces rest at the Bottom(Ground) Platform.  Therefore, this chess game may be considered as a Single Set,Uniform,Linear chess game.

Photo # 3 shows an example of a Non-Uniform chess game.  The reason for this is because Player I Orange-Blue color band White pieces rest on the Top (Air) Platform at Base(1) while Player II Orange-Blue color band Black pieces stays at the Bottom (Ground) Platform at Base(0).  The symbolic nomenclature for this AIR-TO-GROUND set-up is (A-G).

************************


Photo # 2 – Presents a Linear, Uniform chess piece position arrangement. The chess set rests at the Bottom(Ground) Platform at Base (0); this Platform may be considered as the Physical Platform.  The Platform that is void of any chess pieces, in this case the Top (Air) Platform, is considered the Abstract Platform or Base (1).  Advance chess allows the movement of the chess pieces on BOTH Platforms intermittently and spontaneously.

************************


Photo # 3 – Presents a Single Set, Non-Uniform, Linear chess game.  Both Player I and Player II chess pieces may move on BOTH Platforms (the Double game boards) intermittently and spontaneously.  The Platform on which Player I Orange-Blue color band White pieces rest may be considered as the Physical Platform (at the Air Level); the corresponding symmetric Platform which is void of Player I White pieces may be considered the Abstract Platform (at the Ground Level).  In contrast, the Platform upon which Player II Orange-Blue color band Black pieces rest may be considered as the Physical Platform (at the Ground Level); the corresponding symmetric Platform which is void of Player II Black pieces may be considered the Abstract Platform (at the Air Level).  This set-up is an AIR-TO-GROUND (A-G) positional configuration.

Photo # 4 presents an AIR-TO-AIR (A-A) positional arrangement.  Thus, this game is a Single Set, Uniform, Linear chess game.  The reason for this is because BOTH Player I Orange-Blue color band White chess pieces and Player II Orange-Blue color band Black chess pieces are on the SAME Platform which is the Top (Air) Platform at Base(1).

************************

Photo # 4 – Displays an AIR-TO-AIR (A-A), Single Set, Uniform, Linear chess game.
BOTH Player I and Player II share the same Physical Platform in this case the Top (Air) Platform.  The Bottom (Ground) Platform which is void of any chess pieces may be considered as the Abstract Platform. Both Player I and Player II chess pieces may use BOTH Platforms at any given instant during this game.

Introduction-The Benefits of Reading Advance Chess Books

Most people who play conventional chess know that it requires two players.   My Advance 3-D Model Chess books explores the possibility of using more than two chess players on the game board, Model III, the Longitudinal Star Gate 14 Model in a chess match.  Model III allows a maximum of four (4) chess players to engage in a chess match.  If I were to challenge four chess players, this means that I would have to CHECKMATE my opponents’ King on four different occasions.

Chess readers who read my Advance Chess books will benefit from reading my chess books.

Some of these benefits include:
1. Readers who find conventional chess boring my find my Advance chess books entertaining.
2. My chess books appeal to readers who crave for hours of exciting chess games and entertainment.
3. Continuous reading of my Advance Chess books improves a reader’s cognitive skills by improving the development of their neuro-plasticity network.  The exercise of their brain activity improves or build synaptic nerves network in their brains.
4.  My Advance Chess books provides the Ultimate in chess game board gaming.
5. My chess books explores alternative possibilities of chess gaming using more than just two chess players on a single game board.

I hope that my readers find my chess books as interesting and as fascinating as I have found during the compilation and final publication of books.

In this blog I shall introduce the concept of Advance 3-d Model chess.  Now imagine a simple box as shown above.

This box has a Bottom base which we may name as the Bottom (Ground) Platform or Base(0).

The top of this box is the Top surface which we may name as the Top ( Air ) Platform or Base(1).

Now when this box rests on a conventional chess board we have a situation that looks like this as shown in Photo # 2

************************

Photo # 2.

Let us call the bottom of the box where the box comes into contact with the chess game board
the Bottom ( Ground ) Platform or Base(0).

If a second chess board was to rests on the top of the box then we would name this chess board
the Top ( Air ) Platform or Base(1) as shown in Photo # 3.

************************

Photo # 3.

When this box is removed and the Top ( Air ) Platform was to be placed to the left of Bottom
( Ground ) Platform we would have a situation that is shown in Photo # 4.

************************

Photo # 4.

The basic concept of Advance 3-D Model chess is to use two or more game boards
which would allow more than two chess players to play at the same instant.

Thus, in Photo # 4, the game board to the Left of the Bottom ( Ground )
Platform, Base(0) is considered the Top ( Air ) Platform, Base(1).

When the box is removed we have a situation of having two separate chess game boards,
which are namely the Top ( Air ) Platform, Base(1) situated at the Left or the game board closer to your view
and the Bottom ( Ground ) Platform, Base(0) positioned to the Right or the game board further away from your line of vision.

This example is shown in Photo # 5.

************************

The basis of Advance 3-D Model chess first starts out with the game board
model which we shall name Model I, the Star Fish Model I

( please reference : The Library of Congress – Model I the Star Fish Model –
Registration Number:  TXu  1-777-122 with copy right service request number : 1-672-70-3461 ).

An example of the Star Fish Model, Model I is shown in Photo # 6.

************************

Photo # 6.

Photo # 6 shows Model I, the Star Fish Model which consists of a Center Board or C(0),
surrounded by four (4) Sections or trapezoidal boards.

Let us assume that we consider this model to be at the Ground (Bottom) Level or at Base(0).

If the Top of Center Board consist of the section called the Upper Bottom (U.B.)
section at Base(0) then the bottom of the Center Board would consist of a section
which we may name as the Lower Bottom ( L.B. ) section also at Base(0).

This would mean then that section to the Left of the Center Board may be named the Bottom Left( B.L.)
section at Base(0) and the section to the Right of the Center Board
may be named the Bottom Right (B.R.) section also at Base(0).

Thus far the sections named on the Star Fish Model are the Upper Bottom( U.B. )
section, the Lower Bottom ( L.B. ) section, the Bottom Left ( B.L. )
section and the Bottom Right ( B.R. ) section.

Examples of the Upper Bottom (U.B.) section and Lower Bottom
(L.B.) section are shown below in Photo # 7.

************************

Photo # 7.

Examples of the Bottom Left ( B.L. ) section and the Bottom Right
( B.R. ) section are shown below in Photo # 8.

************************

Photo # 8.

The sections named on Model I, the Star Fish Model,
thus far are the Upper Bottom( U.B.) section, the Lower Bottom (L.B.) section,
the Bottom Left (B.L.) section and the Bottom Right ( B.R. ) section.

The four sections on Model I allow for the use of a maximum of two unique chess sets or may involve four chess players.

The inclusiveness of two separate game boards as mentioned earlier ( with the box concept )
would result in Model II, the Latitudinal Star Gate 14 Model ( please reference :
The Library of Congress  : Model II, the Latitudinal Star Gate 14 model – Registration Number : TXu  1-782-217
with the copy right service request number as : 1-69-12-47-801.

The separation of the Top ( Air ) Platform at Base(1) from the Bottom ( Ground )
Platform at Base(0) would result in the formation of Model III, the Longitudinal Star Gate 14 Model.

Please view Photo # 9.

************************

Photo # 9.

Photo # 9 shows an example of Model III, the Longitudinal Star Gate 14 model.

This model allows the usage of four unique chess set or may allow a maximum
of four (4) chess players to engage in a chess match.

If I were to challenge four (4) other chess players ( totaling five chess players in all )
this would mean that I would need to [CHECKMATE] my opponents’ Kings
on FOUR separate occasions to win the chess match.

In this case, there are two game boards.
These are : (1) the Top ( Air ) Platform at Base(1) ( the game board closer to your view )
which consist of the Upper Top (U.T.) section and the Lower Top ( L.T. ) section
as well as the Top Left (T.L.) section and the Top Right ( T.R. ) section and (2) the Bottom ( Ground ) Platform at Base(0)
( the game board further away from your line of vision ) which consist of the Upper Bottom (U.B.) section
and the Lower Bottom (L.B. ) section as well as the Bottom Left ( B.L. ) section and the Bottom Right ( B.R. ) section.
