  1. 12:27 Couldn't the pawn of e5 in the original timeline take the queen on e5 in the second timeline by going 1 timeline up and 1 turn backwards?

  2. Least confusing game of 5D chess ever played

  3. Again, sorry for the occasional background fan in this one.
    I also wanted to say thank you for everyone that's been watching so far, I love this game and can promise you will see a lot more of it!

  4. What might be the most proximal/late defence for black to stave off defeat at that final move?
    I think it is at least 2 moves back.

    If on the previous turn they move their queen, then they can pre-emptively travel back in time to before your turn where you timetravel to deliver checkmate.
    This will be an inactive black timeline, but it will become active if you try to deliver the checkmate.

    You then have the choice of:
    * Insisting, and trying to survive in a timeline where you're a queen down, until the present catches up to your checkmate,
    * Resisting, since if you never make another timeline, then black has thrown away their queen in order to defend against the hypothetical past threat you posed that turn.

    I think at least one (if not both) of those choices will win, so this line seems to only slow down white's victory, and a genuine defence has to be found at some other point.

  5. At 13:37 could not pawn in the Future take the side-Queen in the present? (literally the same one which the Queen took in the past.)

  6. I only learned the rules of 5d chess yesterday, so this might be wrong … but it seems like the queen move at 20:05 was a mistake. Wouldn't the queen on H5 have put the black king in check in 3 moves, just by staying there instead of moving? Ie, by attacking 3 moves past, 3 squares left, 3 squares up? And the white bishop blocks the only squares the king could escape to, including squares in the past.

  7. This game must be extremely fucking difficult if my guy is struggling on the third move

  8. me, an idiot that understands no board game at all: i understand this
