Chess is a game which is very repayable (Especially in a multiplayer environment). If/When the source is released i think it would be a good idea to put chess tables into a public area.

Below is a concept of my take on what a more "Advanced" game of chess could be like:
Image

Basically the table would be able to have 1-4 players playing in the same game. When a player sits on one of the 4 chairs (Never drew them, they would be at the sides) a bit on the side would move towards them (Coloured bits) and then a platform with there pieces would raise from it(The platform would become like a normal chess boards first 2 rows where your pieces start).

Each side would have a "ready" button, once all players(Based on how meny are sitting down) have pressed the button the game would start. Camera would most likley have to turn into a fixed perspective looking down on the whole board.

P.S I know my idea would not be easy to implement.

Particually with having 4 players and traditional chess having 2 players.

Scale it to that level and you possibly have an idea that works :)

Look up Chess Empire. It was a 4-player Chess game that added a new piece, called the Spy. See how it works, could be implemented as a public game.

I had a similar idea but two people would be on the board moving the chess pieces. The question is how large can you make a kickable in 3D Studio Max and how do you keep them from falling over?

If some one could come up with some ideas for the Chess pieces , Im still a novice is 3DSM but I may be able to come up with something, a community project perhaps

But how bout something like this instead?

I had a similar idea, but with the lag issues I kinda thought it wouldn't be all that fun. Basically you would need 32 explorers that dressed the part of the chess pieces.

It would add the clothes to everyones closets. It would be a group event to play chess.

The one Im working on only takes 2 to 4 people. I just started working on a raised platform for a better view and camera angles.

Although I did have an idea for Chess pieces using characters from the Myst Series..............:-)
