The players of this chess game are immersed in the stereographic
phenomena, similar to seeing a darboard as a tunnel tapering into
the distance, and place the chess pieces on uneven planes that
spectators cannot see. The disorderly pieces are clinging to the
of a horizontal causeway of
sixtyfour seethrough glass pillars each
greatly varying randomly in length. Nine out of ten boxes actually
contain a stereographic image.

Line Drawing Deranged State Chess

||Yes, I see exactly what you mean.
||You see that it's tattooed on the back of a morbidly obese
||I would sketch this for you, but I might not come back...
||3D chess is a small variant of this fever dream.
||Ok I've been working on drawing this chess layout, and
only possible way without a stereographic 3D rendering,
to use eight colours. Each row of squares has to be a
different colour for example white backrow is red, front
row of pawns is blue, green row, yellow row, purple row,
orange, black frontrow pink, and black backrow is black.
||With these colours draw the topography of each row.
lines should overlap at some points.
That's basically the image. Each row should look a line
drawing of a skyline, sort of like bar graph outlines.
||The second link is a pretty inaccurate attempt but shows its possible, and the third link is a quick 3d attempt in crayon.
||It's quite a difficult thing to do, although I intend to draw a functional version sometime soon once I get a large enough sheet of paper to make the details, and a good rough sketch that gets the angles right and the distribution of squares in a challenging but discernable order.
