Three Player Chess is Just as Crazy As it Sounds

if you are a fan of games of skill, then you probably fancy playing a challenging game of chess. If you think that regular chess is just too easy of a game for you, then try three player chess. And yes, it is just as crazy as it sounds.

Three player chess is essentially normal chess with a third player added. The board is shaped usually like a hexagon, but other shapes also exist. There are three different “armies” in 3 player chess, each starting on their own side. Movements for the individual pieces are essentially the same. The only difference is that the board squares aren’t actually square, so when you move a piece like a rook, it actually ends up taking a curvier path.

THE RULES OF THREE PLAYER CHESS

You may be asking yourself, how is three player chess fair? Couldn’t you just game up on one player and take them down? Well, theoretically, and this is why three player chess was a hard game to design fairly. For most common three player chess variants, the winner is simply the player who is the first to deliver checkmate. This means that the game is over as soon as one player takes down another, with the other player coming in second. In other words, the first to checkmate is first, the first to be in checkmate is last, and the other player is second.

For myself, being someone who loves chess but has never played 3 player chess, I wanted to give the game a go. I stumbled upon a website called threechess.com where you can play against others or just computers. I decided that playing against a computer where I could set the difficulty would be a much more fun pursuit. I gave the game a go, and I have to say, it was much more fun than regular chess, at least in my opinion.

Not only are you constantly worried about having your pieces taken down from 2 other players, but you get to watch the carnage of other players attacking each other as well. It brings the fun of watching a game and playing a game of chess into one.

Historically speaking, there are other ways to play three player chess other than the “first to checkmate” way. Famously, there was a “neutrality rule” introduced in the mid-2000s by Ilshat Tagiev. This rule states that whoever’s turn it is he can only attack the enemy if he was attacked by that enemy in a previous move, or, if the opponent was not attacked by the third player on its previous course. This rule prevents 2 players from chasing a third, and is one of the main ways to play the game.

TRUTH About RIO OLYMPICS 2016 – Genetic Culling of the New World Order #Doping #Rio2016

rio2016

Published on Aug 11, 2016

What is the #Truth about the #Rio2016 Olympic games? Beyond the “#Illuminati Symbolism” of the opening ceremonies, the Olympics are backed up by a real International Institution whose intent is to have “global peace” by the year 2030. With the Sustainable Development 2030 Agenda, the world is getting ready for a complete totalitarian global system, which includes genetic and biometric identification for all people on earth.

Amongst the philosophies that guide these works by the International Institutions, is that of creating a new race of evolved humans. Much like we saw in the film Gattaca, I foresee a class division amongst humanity coming by the way of #transhumanism, and genetic therapies. The crux of these issues fall on world class athletes.

The drama of the IOC, WADA, along with its Institutional overhaul of the Rio labs to collect urine and blood samples of the Olympic athletes is very suspicious in light of the grand agenda.

X-Ray Yoga – The Bones Behind The Poses

Yoga

Ever wondered what a body looks like while doing yoga? Science Photo Library answers that question with these fascinating x-rays, like this one in the downward-facing dog Pose above or Bakāsana Crane/Crow pose below

Hybrid_Medical_animation_xray_crow pose-1

Published on Mar 11, 2014

A visual study/exploration of the body in motion with a focus on yoga poses.

Our goal for this piece was to create a realistic representation of radiological (x-ray) imaging.

Yoga’s forms recreated in X-ray imaging shows the beautiful flow that the body gets into when going into one pose after the other. Although there are no muscles or tendons, the movements give off a sort of flexibility allowing the bone structures to move smoothly and seamlessly through each progression.

It is easy to discern the many benefits of yoga from the direct experience of daily practice in your own life. This video will offer a seldom-seen perspective into some of the most popular asanas, or poses, of traditional yoga. Come along for an epic journey into the full range of motion of a living skeletal system. Observe as the subject transitions fluidly through a sequence of yoga postures.

One awesome benefit of seeing X-ray Yoga is the ability to see how your skeleton aligns itself properly in every pose. Yoga clearly aids in proper skeletal alignment and increased flexibility which helps prevent injuries from other types of physical activities.
Instead of just creating a still image, however, we wanted to combine the beautiful moves of yoga with this new visual approach to bring the full human skeleton to life.

Technical challenges included aspects such as achieving proper bone densities and representing actual bone marrow inside each individual bone.

Have you ever wondered how technology has changed the bike and bike design from a simple steel tubed design to the state of the art aerodynamic machines today?

The Science Behind the Bike is a series of films that investigate how science and technology have transformed the sport of cycling.

We talk to Olympic gold-medalists Chris Boardman and Rebecca Romero, and Paralympian gold-medalist Sarah Storey, take a trip to a wind tunnel, consult with Team GB physiologists and hear from design experts and cycling legends such as Graeme Obree and Francesco Moser.

In this series you will find out about the legendary Hour Record (the record for the longest distance cycled in one hour), learn about technology, discover the forces that have to be overcome to ride fast and understand how the body deals physiologically when riding at Olympic level.

Many of us are in a sitting rut at work, which we know isn’t a good thing. Cubii is an under-desk elliptical machine that helps you stay moving, even when you’re seated.

The design is minimal and lightweight. Unlike a standing desk, Cubii weighs only about 25 pounds and has a low profile that fits easily under a desk—no bumping your knees while pedaling.

It’s quiet, too. The noise it makes is similar to white, background noise, so it won’t interfere with phone calls or conversations. Adjust the resistance to suit your fitness level, then connect to the companion app to track your progress, check on calories burned, or sync your steps with a fitness tracker like FitBit.

Cubii can help burn a few extra calories and keep you moving throughout the day.

Cricketer Shane Warne believes we evolved from alien experiments on monkeys …👽👽👽…

warne-aliens

“If we’ve evolved from monkeys, then why haven’t those ones evolved?” Warne asks in a clip from tonight’s episode, prompting a half-hearted “Yeah …” from fellow contestant Bonnie Lythgoe. “Cos I’m saying: Aliens. We started from aliens,” Warne continues. “Look at those pyramids, Bonnie. You couldn’t do ‘em. You couldn’t pull those huge bits of brick and make it perfectly symmetrical … couldn’t do it.
So who did it?” “Has to be from another world, has to be,” says Lythgoe, apparently warming to the idea that Warne is the Fox Mulder of the cricketing world. “Whatever planet they’re on out there, they decided that they were gonna start some more life here on earth and study us,” Warne states, as if this were a proven fact ( via news.com.au ).
“Scientifically, we have so many similarities to monkeys, so I don’t know … yeah,” Lythgoe offers, leading Warne to deliver his piece de resistance: “Maybe they turned a few monkeys into humans and said ‘Yeah, it works’.”

While some amateur sports enthusiasts dish out thousands of pounds on expensive equipment to try to create the perfect video, Nicolas Vuignier spent far less.

The Swiss professional freeskier said he has been working on his “Centriphone” video experiment for two years. It involves nothing more than an iPhone, a piece of string and the powers of centrifugal force…
