This book is about Advance chess games using the Advance chess game board, Model I , the Star Fish Model or the Sting Ray Model. This book discusses three unique chess games namely, Game # 4, Game # 5 and Game # 6. The game board resembles the Sting Ray, a type of flat fish that swims in wave-like motions along the bottom of the ocean floor off the Caribbean Islands.
Although this type of game board allows the play of a maximum of two chess sets at the same instant, this book focuses on the Single Set/Single Platform games. A Single Set game involves only one chess set. A Single Platform game refers to the use of only one game board ; Model III contrary to Model I uses two game boards, whereas Model I uses only one game board.
The game board, Model I, consists of a Center board with four hexagonal sections on the four sides of the center board. The hexagon at the top of the Center board is the Upper Bottom (U.B.) section at Base(0) since this is in reference to only one game board (Base(0)). The hexagon at the bottom of the Center board is the Lower Bottom (L.B.) section at Base(0). The hexagon at the Left of the Center Board is the Bottom Left (B.L.) section at Base(0). The hexagon at the Right of the Center Board is the Bottom Right (B.R.) section at Base(0). It is important to note that since this game is a Single Set game, chess players may position the chess pieces at the Top, Upper Bottom(U.B.) section and the Bottom, Lower Bottom(L.B.) section of the game board. This is the conventional way of positioning the chess pieces. Conventional positioning of the chess pieces allows for the vertical movements of the chess pieces. However, a non-conventional way of positioning the chess pieces in a Single Set game involves the use of the Bottom Left (B.L.) section and the Bottom Right (B.R.) section. In this case, the chess pieces would have horizontal across the game board.
This book which consists of 147 pages contains Diagrams, Drawings, Illustrations of the game board, Model I. The Diagrams and Drawings show and name the various sections of the game board with the display of the Rows and Columns of the game board. The Photos show the movement of the chess pieces on the game board. The Equations or Statements describe the movement of the chess pieces. The Equations mention the position of the chess piece BEFORE displacement and the position of the chess piece AFTER displacement.
