World downloads (use latest version) and board Schematic attached below.
This is a playable chess set using the latest v1.8 Minecraft:

To be done. At the moment (v0.3) you have the ability to pick up and place pieces.
Rules for piece movement, check and stale-mate detection, pawn promotion
Ability to call up the Console wherever you are on the map (it's at a fixed location currently, but can be dismissed or recalled) - [v0.4 partially implemented]
Saving games for later recall
Showing the taken pieces behind each side
Bug fixes - the cell references, timing, tracking which player's turn it is, logging moves.
A mini-board near the console
Play against Redstone AI.
Different chess sets to choose from - [v0.4 implements this. Now I just need to make some pretty pieces]
i.e. there's no logic currently. At the moment it's just like having a physical board where you can do whatever you like if you so choose.
Right now this implementation will support chequers and any other similar board game of this type. Just change the pieces on the 'reference board'.
