Chess Played on a Cylinder

In February, the US Patent Office granted Craig Wallace Coulter possession of this design for a unique version of the classic game. It consists of two 8×8 boards next to each other and wrapped around a cylinder. Four complete sets of pieces are necessary, possibly for four different simultaneous players. The pieces are attached to the cylinder with either velcro or magnets.

Coulter proposes, if I understand his application correctly, adding additional 8×8 boards to the cylinder, allowing for an even larger playing space, as well as additional players to the same game. At this point, like Risk or Succession Wars, diplomacy and treachery are likely components of the game.
