    Unlike the previous two three-player variants of Chinese Chess/象棋/Xiangqi, this version is fully professional (and has a decently long history). The board is professionally printed, the pieces custom made for the set, and the rules, instead of being a bunch of JPG images (first game) or little strips of paper that look like they were printed on a POS terminal (second game), are printed professionally on proper print stock with colour ink. Of course you pay for what you get. This game has almost no changes to piece movement, but as with the first game lacks the key strategy of pinning opposition. It also has four sides, despite there being only three players. The yellow pieces to the left are the fourth side and they begin the game aloof. They do nothing (and can have nothing done to them) until a piece of any of the other teams reaches the black spots around the yellow general. The specific spot landed on determines who is now allied with the yellow pieces--whoever that is adds the yellow pieces to their own forces--while the other two team up to fight against them. The yellow pieces are VERY powerful (three chariots and a cannon), so don't let the low piece count fool you. As with the first game, it's hard to use cannon pins. As with the second game, the middle part adds a dimension to the board, in this case a sizable dimension (9x9 grid) which changes some key movement and placement strategies.Unlike the previous two three-player variants of Chinese Chess/象棋/Xiangqi, this version is fully professional (and has a decently long history).
