Chess For 3

So you play chess? I don’t but it seems that there has always been a chess board & pieces around the house when I was growing up. I tried learning to play the game when I was 11 but football ruled my life.

My dad bought a chess board a few years ago to give my sister’s kids and it is kept at our place so whenever the kids come over, they can play it.

I was surprised a few months ago when my dad & my then 7 year old younger nephew, Adithya, were playing each other! And I’m not sure if they both know the rules of the game but they, and especially my nephew, were engrossed in the game.

Today I saw Adithya and his older brother Abishek and their cousin Gopi playing chess! How the heck do you play chess with 3 participants? At the same time? Apparently three young kids, aged 9-8 can.

Just ask these guys! Again, I’m not sure if they know the rules!
