  1. 1. Executive Summary Vision / Mission In 2013 , 3-D Chess Inc. was created to bring the world chess communities together in a dynamic way, in order to share some of the insights of the New Age Futuristic Chess games. The games of 3-D chess is a new phenomenon of the classical conventional chess that entails the art of intuitive deception, the prognosis of skillful tactical strategic logistics and the holistic virtues of patience and humility against insurmountable odds of an opponent's dominating prowess. The games provides better insights into human psychology , especially when under breaking psychological strains to win , human behavior and the signs of human body languages since this game primarily is a game of intense psychological warfare. Overall, our company can be characterized as a high quality manufacturer of the 3-D Chess game business. Our purpose is to provide high quality chess models that will eventually replace the conventional game board of classical chess. We intend to produce and distribute the 3-D Chess game model world-wide on the international market with viral tools that are at our disposal.

We want to provide our clients with the gaming attention and advice which they demand and need. For many years people have become bored with the classical games of conventional chess which has resulted in the creation of an explosion of uninteresting low quality viral computer games that do not match the quality of play that comes with the territory domain of chess.
