At some point a game just gets overly complex (inb4 hurr brainlet) with no appreciable gain in pleasure. Ever play Warhammer? A 1000 point game is fun. A 10,000 point game is just a slog.

You can't cover a sphere with just squares. You'd have to throw a few pentagons to fill some spots.

I really don't think it would be that much more complex than standard chess.
Would still be fine, doesn't have to be all squares.

I agree about the size of the game, but would you have the same complaint if a standard chess board was projected onto a sphere?

Had a look at their site, it looks cool but also a bit contrived. Is the gameplay actually interesting?

It is, it's called regimental chess.

Yes, it is surprisingly fun for the creation of a hipster.

This game is more fun to play against people of lower skill, as pieces remain on the board. So, there is always the possibility of a comeback if you lose your guard.

That is, more interesting than playing chess against noobs.

Oh wait, there is no concept of taking at all, just combining. I was confused for a bit but it sounds pretty cool then.

Well, you are the one who said it.

You can make a game board like that, OP. Just use velcro.

You would not be able to play chess an a sphere. Grids to not map to spheres.

Fun fact: the game tetrisphere is actually played on a torus. The game just presents it like a sphere when you play.
