Tertium not datum?

I have maked this site for all, who like chess.
I have devised new chess for three players.
Wellcome to 3-chess!


I have devised new chess for three players. For what reason? Strange as it may appear for more interesting and more multiforming play. I believe, so I touch success in this.
Now set up.

About pole

Sphere of action (chess-board) is rectilineal hexagon
parted on six rectilineal main triangles.
Each of these six main triangles parted on 25 rectilineal small triangles by parallel sides of main triangle lines.
As follows from the above in sum we get 6*25= 150 triangles in field for play.

Illuninated triangles following one after another in one of three main colours (black, gray, white) we get the field for play ready.

How to play

How to move chess-man you can see in the following pictures.

Pawn moves

Pawn move on three front fields but can beat only two extreme of them.
Seems logical the "En Passe" rule not apply and on the first move for the pawns they cant move two spaces.


Castle's moves.


Knight's moves.


Queen's moves.


Bishop's moves.


Only one new chess-man is bow-man.
Bow-man's moves.


King's moves.

Players move

After loss one of players his chess-mans remain on chess-board but the rest two players can beat them.

Players move on hand.


First, what i done -- other chess-mans.

Variant of the chess-mans, where understandable, why they are so named.
There variants for others colors.

Yellow-green skin.

Blue-red skin.
