There are few ways to play in three-player chess.
The first option: game is continued until the first checkmate is delivered. The winner is the player who delivered the checkmate. The losers are both opponents. One of them who was checkmated and the next one, who did not prevent checkmate to the opponent.
The second game option allows after the first checkmate continue the match. The player who delivered a checkmate takes the pieces of the checkmated player. Then he/she continues to play with two sets of pieces.
The third option is similar to second option of the game. The play continues after the first king is captured. The different of this variations is the pieces of the checkmated player belongs to no-one. The pieces are not removed from the chessboard but they can be captured and replaced.
The game combines all of the infinite varieties of a classic chess. The introduction of third player in the chess is totally changing view on the strategy and style of play. Each next player can move to attack or to defense of any opponent. If one player trades off pieces with a second player, then third player gets the benefit.
Now players should avoid the trades and should use other strategies. Each of players must prevent the two opponents from checkmating one another.
