The German one with unicorns is played on a 5x5x5 area. I thought That I had pointed it out during the pre poll discussion.

I recall that you did, too. Ah, well, anyone who has played it will know, and anyone who hasn't probably won't care, so it doesn't really matter for the poll.

I suspect that I will be the only one who has played it so as you say it will not mater.

An extra type of piece with a move similar to the knights was needed to fit the extra dimension Einhorn just seemed a suitable horse like piece for that roll.

Missing option – Tried it, didn't like it.

NO, not sure I even seen a 3d chess board in person.
But 40 years ago a few of us invented a new 4 player chess game using a complete chess board witha half board extendingfrom each side making a cross +. It could be played two on two or every player agaist each other.
If you look on wiki there are many variations of chess.

For those who wonder what this is about, I built my own set (and wrote my own rules) earlier this year: link

I've played it quite a bit, and it makes for an interesting and uniquely challenging chess experience…especially when the little boards are moved!
