A Bauhaus Chess inspired pieces with a possible game play twist. Each of the pieces can nest into the recess of any other piece. How will this twist effect game play? Perhaps a variant where when capturing a piece you stack on it and gain it's movement. Perhaps you can "capture" your own pieces to make a more powerful piece that you can dismount later.

Its cool, I have just one question, How can you see wich piece is underneat ?

On tinkercad MakesALot pointed out this is similar to a game called Quantum that I've never heard of. But now I want to make a set and try it out.


My children have the original game somewhere (from my childhood), when I get a chance, I'll post you some pictures of the pieces, I remember enjoying playing it and my children do now :)
