Play chess with 3 people at the same time with this three player chess game. Without compromising any of the rules, strategy, or fun of Chess, this variant board has been developed that accommodates three players. The only changes from conventional chess are some protocol issues that must be followed to maintain order where the teams border each other, which is simple and necessary. The complexities of the third player are infinite. Your threatened piece may be allowed to maintain occupancy as your position is beneficial to the threatening player. But how long can it last? This scenario may exist all over the board. There are multiple trust and doubt situations among all players.
The board is 1/8 inch (3mm) thick, 19 inches (48cm) in diameter, made of PVC plastic, & weighs 12 ounces (.34kg). The 3 sections are hinged together [with a heavy cotton fiber tape that will not crack over time], and unfold to produce the round board which can be lifted, and carried to another table if necessary.
