Can anybody help me about a board game I saw being played at a music festival this summer? It was a chess based game with all the conventional pieces but for 3 players. The board was 3 sided, not triangular, but like the Manxman symbol for the Isle of Man with the legs cut off at the knees. If anyone knows this and can tell me where to get one I would be most grateful Thanx.

I used google image search for 3 player chess and came up with two links. I think it's probably the second one.

That 2nd picture from mib668 - I've seen them recently at Cardiff Games (http://www.cardiffgames.co.uk/)

I don't think they do mail order, but they may be able to help.

Tables with three legs usually wiggle. The fourth leg really provides stability.

Three points define a plane.

Ok, I keep forgetting most of you guys are mathematicians.



Here is a new one liner. You would need a three sided table to play this one.

OR

I have never heard of a three legged animal before. The number three seems very unnatural.
