"How to Play 4D Chess" (Instructor loses both games)
Allen Pan and Sufficiently Advanced show us “How to Play 4D Chess”
First, Allen shows us 3D chess, as 4 16-square boards stacked, which can be projected onto 3 dimensions. The moves of the pieces are derived algebraically.
Then 4D chess, on a tesseract (as from the movie “Interstellar” has a 256-square playing matrix as a projection of four 3-D stacks and again the same algebra (quaternion) defining the movies.
Allen loses with Black to Diana in 3D’s and then with White in 4D’s when he blunders a pawn to a knight. Petroff’s Defense doesn’t work quite the same way as what he was used to.
The term 4-D Chess has been applied to Trumpian politics. You can check "Economic Invincibility" on "I'm Sick of 4-D Chess". Note: chess piece team designation has nothing to do with race.
