Three Player Chess

By Robert Zubrin


I noticed on your site there is an article about Three Player Chess, claiming it was invented in Scotland the mid 1990s.

In fact, I invented Three Player Chess in 1969, and received the US Patent for it in 1972. The game was commercially marketed under license in the US and Germany in the 1970s.

A copy of my patent and the NY Times Article about it when the patent was granted is attached.

Please feel free to post these items.

Yours truly,

Robert Zubrin
