The idea of Triwizard Chess was developed by Aditya and Ashish Nigam, IIT alumni and avid chess fan who wanted to reinvent the classic, muchloved game and revolutionize the gaming industry. The idea behind this game was to encourage chess among youngsters by increasing the number of players.
Ever since I started playing Chess in my kindergarten, there were number of occasions when somebody and I were playing Chess and my brother or a friend was just watching the game. Even though he or she eagerly wanted to play. Sometimes it was me watching the game, eagerly wanting to play. (Has this ever happened to you?) I have always wondered since then if three people can play Chess at the same time. It was this desire that led me to Triwizard Chess, Chess for three players. Aditya Nigam
Involving 3 players changes the entire dynamics of the game and makes it far more exciting. Each of the three players can view each other's' moves on the board and make a decision accordingly. So far, more than 100 contestants participated in the first Triwizard Chess tournament hosted by the IITRourkee in August 2018.
