Default Dukes Chess

Yes, while many different three-person Chess variants have been designed - many
inspired by an ancient one for Chinese chess - unlike normal Chess, the way to
lose is to make the other two players gang up on you, so while it can be a fun
game socially, playing it seriously to win the way one does normal Chess seems to
be impossible.

So it's a totally different kind of game.
