  3. Sounds like a game for Eobard Carlsen

  4. I like how the developer implemented all of these complexities with no problems, but they took one look at en passant and were like, "Nah, we're not even gonna try to figure out how that might work across timelines; let's just say you just can't do it."

  12. This is what happens when you put Chess and Back to the Future in a blender.

  13. I need someone to clip "We'll discuss time line branches after we've covered the basics of time travel"

    Reply

  14. Is this a chess git versionning game ?

    Reply

  15. I'm only half of the video and my head hurts💀

    Reply

  16. I only count 4 dimensions… 2 on a normal board, +1 for time +1 for timelines. What is the 5th dimension???

    Reply

  17. I am officially mentally scared because of this chess variant

    Reply

  18. the gooey :skull:

  19. ITS G-U-I NOT GUI

    Reply

  20. This is the most interesting, informative, yet confusing video that I have watched to it's full extent. Maybe it's because of my basic chess and Hollywood time travel knowledge.

    Reply

  21. 4:05 the way he casually drops that bomb of phrase

    Reply

  22. Funnily enough, because the third spatial dimension goes unused, this is technically 4D Chess, not 5D Chess.

  23. Getting chackmate in 104 paralell universes 🙂

  24. Why did I understand this so well

    Reply

  25. I already have enough problems in ordinary chess.

  26. Jurrasic ROOK

  27. Everybody gangasta before Spiderman 2099 says: "yo its a canon event"

    Reply

  28. I tought you'd be able to move pieces through the 3rd, 4th, and 5th dimensions

    Reply

  29. So basically this is playing chess with Michelle Yeoh

    Reply

  30. Another way to think of the movement is this (please correct anything I missed or got wrong):
    * If a piece moves in multiple dimensions, it must move the exact same number of spaces in each dimension.
    * The king may move 1 space in 1-4 dimensions
    * The queen may move any number of space in 1-4 dimensions
    * A rook may move any number of spaces in an single dimension
    * A bishop may move any number of spaces in exactly 2 dimensions
    * A knight may move any two spaces in 1 dimension and 1 space in a different one, ignoring intervening pieces
    * A pawn may only move 1 space towards opponent's side or opponent's created timelines; it may move two spaces on it's first move. To capture, as well as it's normal single space movement, it also moves left, right or back one time step

  31. This is a great game. Sometimes, I win without even knowing why. I haven't played much on larger boards, I usually play smaller boards.

    Reply

  32. WTF is this piece of S

    Reply

  33. "We'll discuss timeline branches after we covered the basics of time travel"

    Never thought I would hear this sentence in my lifetime 🤣

    Reply

  34. I’m 5 minutes into the video and i feel scared and confused. I can understand why its tagged as a physiological horror game

    Reply

  35. My head hurts

    Reply

  36. I just don't know regular chess

    Reply

  37. I'm efuriated that bishop must move laterally after time travel. And also that it is allowed to timetravel into own timeline

    Reply

  38. Thankfully en passant is not allowed through timelines, that would have made the game complicated

    Reply

  39. Did you just say ’void space’? Oh my days bruv.

  41. Finally Chess 2: Electric Bogaloo

    Reply

  42. So they really made chess 2.0

    Reply

  43. But isn't this more like 3D chess? The timelines basically only create one additional dimension.

    Reply

  44. Pieces can move on the
    1) X axis
    2) Y axis
    3) Forward and back in time
    4) Parallel through timelines in the present.

    So why is it 5d Chess, and not 4d chess? What am I missing here?

    Reply

  45. I dont like the bishops time travel moves. It can alternate its space color by doing that. Bishops should always be restricted to the same color.

    Reply

  46. What a baby game. You mean you have to use your hands?

    Reply

  47. I'd play 1 game but I want it to be in real life. Between my phone for showing legal moves boards and keeping track of turns and physical boards and pieces physically moving to boards

  48. This isnt english
