I'd love to play that. If you lose do you get sucked into a different universe/dimension?

In one of the episodes, I think it was Fry and the Slurm Factory, Leela and the Professor are playing 3-D scrabble.

from his avy I assume flesheatingbull was aware of this but from the replies it's not clear everyone else does, so I'll explicitly point it out.

Tri-D chess is a Star Trek reference.

3d scrabble on the other hand... hmm... that's a hell of an idea. Visualization is the tricky bit... :runs off to scribble ideas:

No he was missing one of the letters, but that letter was on the board.

Ya. Never noticed that before. Its not as cool as that one intro (forget which episode) where Fry and Bender are playing a sort of holographic chess with moving characters tho. I actually went on like a 2-hour google trek to look if soemthing like that had ever been invented. Sadly, it has not :(  :cry:

Sadly 'portrayed in a movie' does not (necessarily) imply 'been invented' (i.e. been invented yet, in real life).

Very true, I guess what I meant to say was the idea has been thought of. I'm sure some SW fan somewhere has built one of their own.

It isn't "tri-dimensional," and it isn't quite holographic, but:


I'll just ooze back out under the door now - unless it's holographic, that is...

I had a dream where that happened, then I fell off the edge of the universe and ceased to exist...
