I think that three-player chess is a great game to play, because not only are you being attacked from one side, but from another as well. I would recommend this game for children aged 7 or over because three-player chess is much more complicated than just standard chess. One of the reasons I call this game complicated is because there are a lot more rules to it and several different versions of the game that you can play.
About Three-Player Chess
The ‘squares’ on the board are also quite complicated because they are skewed and stretched into different quadrilaterals. Three-player chess is a game for people who have played and know the rules of standard chess. The colours of the three-player chess are not black and white like in standard chess, but instead they are blue, red and green. In one of the versions of the rules of three-player chess, you are only allowed to move your pieces in certain parts of the board until one person is defeated, after which the whole board is open to the remaining two players.
My Experience from Playing Three–Player Chess
In another version of three-player chess, the board is open for all players from the outset. Three-player chess is popular in Hungary and this is where my board and pieces were bought. From my time playing three-player chess with my sister and my dad, I can assure you that it is a fun game to play with friends and family. If there is someone you enjoy playing games with then you should try to get them interested in chess, because then they can develop their skills to play three-player chess with you and another friend. Personally, I think that three-player chess is a great game.
My Opinion on Three–Player Chess
I think that three-player chess is more fun and more versatile than standard chess. It is a lot more exciting and I think more people should get involved in three-player chess. It is a much more exciting game than standard chess because it is so much harder to predict your opponents’ move. Even if you are playing the version where some of the board is cut off, it is still challenging because of the increased complexity of responses from more than one opponent.
Different Approaches in Three–Player Chess
One of the interesting aspects of three-player chess is that you can work as a team with another player. For example, if one of your opponents is about to knock out both other players and win the game, then you could team up with another player and try to knock them out. If you break the deal with the other player then there is a risk you will get defeated along with the other player. Trust me, my sister and me made a deal to defeat my dad, but my sister broke the deal, which resulted in me being knocked out and she got stale-mated!
