Triple-Threat

The term “triple-threat” refers to the number of players at the board in a single game.

It is taken into consideration that “friendly fire” poses a threat, too, as allied pawns may be forced to eliminate each other from the track.

Each single triple-threat game shall have 15-minute intervals after 90 minutes, 3 hours and each additional 60 minutes of play. Intervals may be skipped or prolonged if all three players agree to do so.

All triple-threat events consisting of more than one counted game shall be ranking tournaments yielding points for the World Rankings and the Medal Race.


Championship / Masters

Allied colours line up side-by-side as vanguard and rearguard (see right board).

Tournaments of these styles of events are scheduled for “first-to-x wins” distances.

A single Championship game is won by the first player to bring home either one of his allied colours (3T).

A single Masters game is won by the first player to bring home both of his allied colours (3T-XL).


Grand Prix Series (GP)

Allied colours line up opposite to each other (see right board).

Such events are scheduled for a pre-determined number of single counted games with the player collecting the most Grand Prix Points (GPP) winning the event.

GPP are scored in accordance with the respective colours’ finishing results:

  • 10 GPP for 1st place1
  • 6 GPP for 2nd place
  • 4 GPP for 3rd place
  • 3 GPP for 4th place
  • 2 GPP for 5th place
  • 1 GPP for 6th place

A bonus of 2 GPP will be awarded to the 1st player to bring home both allied colours.2

There are no tie-breakers. If applicable, an event shall be extended by counted extra games until the event’s winner is determined. If the event’s winner is mathematically determined prematurely, the winner can call for the remaining scheduled games be cancelled.


Grand Prix XL (GP-XL)

GPP are scored as follows:

  • 4 GPP for the 1st player to bring home both of his allied colours
  • 2 GPP for the 2nd player to bring home both of his allied colours
  • 1 GPP for the 3rd player to bring home both of his allied colours

Otherwise, Grand Prix (GP) rules apply.


  1. In 2023, 9 GPP were scored by 1st place. ↩︎
  2. In 2023, no additional GPP were awarded to the 1st player to bring home both colours. ↩︎
