The main consequence of using Chessboard Layout pattern is that you are constricted by a 2 dimensional hierarchy for the application.
However, it is fair to say that a consequence of adopting a Chessboard Layout is that the number of navigational choices is limited by the visual area available as those choices must fit and look appropriate in the space provided.

 The Tripolar Chessboard - by Michael T. Klare and Tom Engelhardt
Many have died in one version or another of this "game," which, if you don't happen to be in an office in London or Washington or Moscow thinking strategic thoughts, has always had such a distinctly unplayful aspect to it, but the image persists.
In our time, that "chessboard" was revived by Zbigniew Brzezinski, former national security adviser to President Carter, who made it the title of a 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard, American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives.
Geographically, it is the only nation that abuts both the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea, positioning Tehran to play a significant role in the two areas of greatest energy concern to the United States, Russia, and China.

Also, when we are propounding puzzles on the chessboard, it is often well to remember that additional interest may result from "generalizing" for boards containing any number of squares, or from limiting ourselves to some particular chequered arrangement, not necessarily a square.

 Napier's Chessboard Calculator   (Site not responding. Last check: )
In an appendix contained in Napier's book entitled "Rabdologia", he described a means of computation through the means of a chessboard, though using chips similar to checkers rather than chesspieces.
While Napier used the characters a and b to represent the digits of the numbers on the board, it is clear now that substitution of 0 and 1 for these characters reveals the now common binary positional notation.
Using the chessboard, Napier described the methods of computing all four standard arithmetic operations (add, subtract, multiply and divide) as well as the extraction of square roots.

Geographically, it is the only nation that abuts both the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea, positioning Tehran to play a significant role in the two areas of greatest energy concern to the United States, Russia, and China.
Even if Washington failed to achieve regime change but, using its military might, crippled Iran's nuclear establishment without sustaining major damage itself in Iraq or elsewhere, this would still be a significant geopolitical win, exposing the inability of either Russia or China to counter American moves of this sort.
