I want to try this game without making/buying a board and it is easier to learn to play when the computer can prevent invalid moves. Does any software, preferably freeware, exist which simulates this flavor of chess?
I had some manner of Star Trek book when I was a kid. Back then, there was only the 60's show. The book covered many 'behind the scenes' sort of topics. Once was 3-D chess. I would like to mention the game was simply made up - no play testing, nothing. It's just a prop.– Tony EnnisJul 21, 2014 at 3:54
There is software for playing Tri-D Chess; Parmen is a Windows application written by Doug Keenan and available free on his website.
Here are some of the external links for (software) Raumschach and Tri-D chess:
There is a version available for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=awfsoft.app.TriDChess
