When the original chess game was invented thousands of years ago it reflected the social structure at that time. The K-Dron Chess Game reflects the social structure of our society now, which is very mobile. One may be born a peasant and end up becoming a CEO of a large company. The rulers, no longer kings, are elected and no position is guaranteed for life. In K-Dron Chess, all the figures start off as pawns and get transformed into knights, bishops, or rooks any time during the game. There are only 5 pieces involved per player, but the strategies, as in life, differ with every move. Chess board not included.
More about the K-DRON spatial form:
K-DRON is both a remarkably simple and complex structure. Its basic form has a square base, 11 multifaceted sides and a diamond-shaped face with a 45 degree angle of inclination. Viewed from above, it is a square within a square. The surface structure is both symmetrical and asymmetrical, concave and convex.
Because of the opposite but complementary nature of its structure, two basic K-DRONs placed on top of each other form a cube. Its structure is intrinsically related to the symmetry of such common forms as the cube, pyramid, octahedron.
