5D Chess With Multiverse Time Travel - How To Move Through Time

By Mad Dog Mcnulty


Clearly, in contrast to common chess, the chess items you have grown to like can now transfer in between timelines and time itself.

It could appear daunting at first, however I guarantee you that it is not as difficult as soon as simplified all the way down to its extra fundamental varieties.

Some fundamental phrases needs to be clarified earlier than studying this information, to higher perceive what im saying.

Relative area: House {that a} piece begins in when time travelling

Timeline: the ‘vertical’ axis of the boards.

Time: the ‘horizontal’ axis of the boards.

It also needs to be talked about that you must consider time journey and timeline leaping in 5D chess as simply one other course the items can transfer in. That mind-set makes it a lot simpler to know why and the way these items are shifting of their respective methods.

We’ll undergo the items within the order:

Rook, Pawn, Queen, King, Bishop, Knight


The only one to clarify, the rook can solely transfer backward via time, can transfer any variety of board, on the situation that it stays in its identical relative area upon travelling.

Keep in mind that the rook prior to now doesn’t have an have an effect on on the place your current rook can transfer via time.


The best way the pawn strikes in common chess is similar to the way it strikes inter-dimensionally on the board(s)

Pawns can’t transfer again in time on the identical timeline that they’re on.

They’ll solely bounce to a timeline that’s “in entrance” of the pawn. They’ll additionally solely transfer one board at a time.

Word that they nonetheless don’t transfer from their relative area that they began on. If you happen to consider time journey in 5D chess as one other course, then shifting via timelines would depend as a pawn shifting as soon as like usually, besides via time. No biggie.


The best way the Queen strikes in 5D chess shouldn’t be how you’d anticipate, however will nonetheless hopefully make sense quickly.

Shifting in time and in between timelines is sort of a “unfold” sample that strikes outward as you journey additional in time and area. It could possibly transfer an infinite quantity of boards following its motion guidelines.

Beginning on the nearest time bounce, you possibly can transfer to all the adjoining squares subsequent to its relative area:

[The transparent Queen is the Queen’s relative space]

As you start to maneuver additional and additional in time (or area) the adjoining accessible squares unfold out every board you journey


You may visualise it with this:

The identical guidelines apply to shifting in area (timeline leaping) as nicely.


This one is straightforward.

The king strikes via time the very same because the Queen, besides just one board at a time.

To refresh your reminiscence from two seconds in the past,

All adjoining squares to the King’s relative area will probably be accessible when time travelling.


The bishop’s time travelling guidelines sort of invert the Bishop’s common motion fashion.

The unfold from the Queen’s travelling additionally applies to this one as nicely.

Versus solely shifting diagonally, the bishop can solely transfer laterally (up-down, left-right) alongside the board when travelling.

It’ll begin with all the lateral adjoining squares to the bishop, spreading as you journey additional in time.

It could possibly transfer any variety of boards, laterally AND diagonally.


Final however not least (difficult) is the knight.

The knight attracts closely from its fashion of shifting two squares in a single course, and one sq. in one other.

Pondering of time as a course makes this one a lot simpler to know.

Take note of this as you learn onto the following half(s).


If the knight strikes two instructions on a board and one course in time, you’ll transfer as if you happen to had simply moved two spots ahead.


If the knight strikes one course on a board and two instructions in time, you’ll transfer as if you happen to had transfer one spot ahead. (All lateral adjoining squares.)


Look again on the first picture to know higher the way it seems within the sport.

Hope this helped, thanks for studying!

If you happen to nonetheless don’t perceive something about piece motion be happy to remark and I am going to attempt to clear up any misconceptions you will have about 5D chess.
