Triad is a three player capturing game that was specifically designed
to be balanced, and to avoid the "kingmaker" problem that is common in
multiplayer games. The objective of the game is to
eliminate all of one player's stones, while keeping the largest number
of stones on the board. Consequently, both the
second place and third place player at any time are motivated to work
against the first place player. The other unusual feature of
the game is that the turn order is not fixed. The rules are
very simple, read the complete rules here.
Triad is only playable by three players. At boardspace, you
can play either with three human players or with two humans and a robot.
