If played on a bigger board than we have currently, I believe that playing with three players may prove to be an interesting, complex variation on C6.
All rules remain the same, except:
The board is large (39x39 at minimum).
Three players (add a color in).
I've tried this out by myself, and come up with interesting results…
You need 7 threats to win, instead of 3.
An open-3 is a double-threat.
Player 1 makes a triple-threat move - Player 2 can ignore it and force Player 3 to block!
Because of the nature of strength in the turn rotation, it would take 6 games to have an “even” series.
Reading the above, I've just thought of this variation of Connect6:
Player-1 plays 1 stone.
Player-2 plays 2 stones.
Player-3 plays 3 stones.
From then, every player plays 3 stones.
The winner is the one who has 6 (or more) in a row, just like Connect6.
Reading again estevao's post, perhaps he did mean too that every player places 3 stones per turn.
Did you mean that, estevao?
Yes, that's what I meant…I thought I had put it in the original post but I guess I hadn't :P
