Indian Institute of Technology-Roorkee Alumnus has reinvented how the chess game is played by developing a Three-player chess game board. Mr. Aditya Nigam,(B. Tech) 2014 batch, has brought this unique experience through his gaming start-up for the first time to his alma mater. Called 'Triwizard Chess,' this is India's first chess for three Players and is a strategy game that tests one's survival and killer instincts, at once. One player can checkmate two players at a single time.
IIT Roorkee hosted a Chess tournament featuring this Triwizard Chess on 18th and 19th August 2018 in which more than 100 contestants participated. The Participants were all IIT Roorkee Students, with mixed variety of Chess Experience, ranging from beginners to advanced.
He will gift Triwizard Chess to the Honourable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi by this month and he has also tweeted this to him. Three player chess combines all of the infinite varieties of a classic game of chess with an addition of complex psychological elements. Alliances are formed and broken if players so wish. A player must be focused not only on attacking and protecting his/her own pieces but also on the protection of the player threatened by the third one. This nature of conquering and surviving is familiar to all who have played chess.
Triwizard chess is not only a game but an art which makes your concentration and focus level high. It even helps you to patiently focus on each and every task. While playing either traditional chess or the Triwizard chess, player needs to have a high amount of concentration and focus. This eventually results in the overall development of an individual.
