Best(with Echexs by Jean-Louis Cazaux ) hexagonal variant for three
The evolution of the Triss must last: the Queens must stand on their own
colour. The King must be on the right on queens. Only necessary to
'density of the game' (an amount of the figures and amount of cells)-
add else row of pawn, or reduce the amount by hexes (this best solution)
the board is a 10-cases side hexagons. The system of notation is not big
problem. I shall do the board and shall play this (reduced board)
