There are few CVs yet for three, a field wide open for development. A requirement maybe is that your name start with a ''Z.'' That is, Zitzelsberger makes Triangle and Zubrin makes Three-Player. Compare Triangle Chess with year 1969 Three-Player, http://www.chessvariants.org/multiplayer.dir/three_player/three_player_chess.html, which is rank number #4 as of now at the NextChess project. Is there likely a greater than 50-50 chance the #4 Three-Player with great staying power is about to be overtaken by one next entrant? Also there is a unit solving triangles, including long diagonals, http://www.chessvariants.org/index/displaycomment.php?commentid=25264. Sizes there are 49, 64, 81; and like Baseball Chess went from comments to CV in 2007, so equilateral triangular boards should work as genre of CV, of which Triangle Chess 144-spaced is good example. Originating Tetraktys itself is 10 points all right but nine cells, http://www.chessvariants.org/index/displaycomment.php?commentid=25183.
