Tri D chess (star trek chess)

Step 1: Step 1

so first you want materials and tools:

plexi glass

something to cut the above item

nuts and bolts (the bolts should be significantly taller than your chess pieces) 

something to make the stand out of 

a drill 

a permanent marker

about two hours

a love of chess and star trek

Step 2: Step 2

start by measuring the plexi glass. measure out 64 squares, and then cut  out 3 4x4 boards and 4 3x3 boards

Step 4: Step 4

all right now you just need to colour the squares and build a stand. colouring the squares is easy. I cant really explain how to build the stand because I just built it out of stuff in my basement. so there you have it how to make your own tri d chess board. you can find rules on line as well as set up instructions.

Interesting. I bought a set when I was younger from ... Franklin Mint, I think it was.

Just FYI, for anyone attempting to create their own: the last two rows of the bottom tier should be overlapped by the first two rows of the middle tier. The last two rows of the middle tier should be overlapped by the first two rows of the top tier. I.E. the entire middle board should be overlapped by the top and bottom boards (The effect being that the board is still 8 deep).
