...that's a pretty board Graeme put up--the first one in the three triangular board games--it looks like a snowflake....

Hi James, glad you liked the board. Not sure if you had a look at the links under 'child pages', but you might be interested in Features of a trigonal board and Fide pieces for trigonal boards

There's also my trigonal version of FIDE chess Delta88 Chess

Cheers
Graeme

edit: I've used snowflakes before - see Antarctic Chess (for 2 to 7 players)
