3 Man Chess runs rings around the classic game

Chess between two people is tricky enough, but add a third player and the classic board game takes on a whole new - circular - dimension. 3 Man Chess takes the original pieces, moves and rules of chess and throws in a third, gray set of pieces and transfers play to a round board: despite the extra manpower and the unusual shape, all of the core tenets actually stay the same.

Colorfly Pocket HiFi C4 Pro looks like a 60’s Star Trek prop
