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. The 3-D Chess games connects to various structural
chess game models however, the concepts of play are basically the same. Advance
Logistic Thinkers of chess will truly appreciate the true value and nature of our company
and the incentives for better business management which our company has to offer to
each respective clients. We treat each client on an individual basis with an open mind
and a sincere heart especially knowing that each client come to us with a need which
needs to be fulfilled.
We intend to be the first company in the History of the Gaming World to manufacture
and distribute the first and best a high quality 3-D chess game model nationwide and
internationally which our clients need and deserve. We intend to fulfill the needs of
Chess Players whom may be Beginners or Advance Players by providing the Game
Model and the manual ( the book is sold independently from the model due to the
logistics problems of production, manufacturing, storage and distribution ) . 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. They lacked the intellectual stimulation which the games of
3-Dimensional Chess provides. The games of 3-D Chess may be self taught through the
unique 3-D chess books which I have published or through 3-D Chess Lessons catering
services which may be provided.
The "state of the art"/condition of the industry today is such that there is a need to make
chess games more sophisticated especially in this age of computerization and automation.
There is nowhere on this planet and in the history of Gaming that the space-age games of
3-D chess is being used , thus making the 3-D chess games unique and the very first of its
kind. Eventually I intend to build a 3-D Chess application that may used on hand held
devices world-wide as the game become ubiquitous.
We have just completed the design , development , testing and introduction of 3-D
Model and Manual ( Book ) and offer Lessons to individuals, groups and Corporations.
