Triad Chess

Triad Chess was born in Marseilles, France. It's inventor Richard Wittig started working on this concept in 1986 and in 1994 he filed the international patent. It took 25 years to see the game arrive on the international market.

Triad Chess is the deserving of the accolade King of Games. Having kept in mind the spirit, basics and proportions of the traditional chess game, Triad Chess opens up a whole new dimension... and what a dimension!!!

Having to confront yourself with 2 opponents at once increases the strategy by 100%. To allow that, the power of your unit has been increased by 50% to 100%, depending on the piece, and each piece is 50% more powerful than the traditional ones.

Throughout the Triad-chess conception process, everything has been thoroughly thought out…

  • Castling

  • Capturing en passant

  • Pawn promotion to any piece

  • Moves pass clockwise

  • Algebraic Notation for the hexagons

  • The knight's distinctive move survives intact

As one testimonial from the Triad Chess website says:

Very good game, the inventor is very friendly (met on heyzap). The inventor has invested both personally and financially to try to make the best game possible to make it fun and so I respect the price. :) Furthermore, the concept of chess for 3 works! Thank you for this game!

If you already know how to play chess, Triad Chess is going to amaze you and if you don't know how to play, it's not a problem. You don't have to be familiar with the traditional chess game to start playing Triad Chess. The rules are as simple as it gets, the difficulty levels are adjustable and AI (artificial intelligence) is there to assist you (pawn activity display).

In all cases, once you get a hold of it, you won't want to let it go.
