I have known about three player chess for some time, but just never have managed to find one for sale. Just as well, because arranging to play with two other players at the same time might not be that easy. I must say that that this looks like fun though, but I wonder at the complexities of the game!! War in an of itself is a complex thing; being both predictable and surprising at the same time. Here is an example from the old testament...
Genesis, Chapter 14
1 It happened in the days of Amraphel, king of Shinar, Arioch, king of Ellasar, Chedorlaomer, king of Elam, and Tidal, king of Goiim, 2 that they made war with Bera, king of Sodom, and with Birsha, king of Gomorrah, Shinab, king of Admah, and Shemeber, king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar). 3 All these joined together in the valley of Siddim (the same is the Salt Sea). 4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year, they rebelled. 5 In the fourteenth year Chedorlaomer came, and the kings who were with him, and struck the Rephaim in Ashteroth Karnaim, and the Zuzim in Ham, and the Emim in Shaveh Kiriathaim, 6 and the Horites in their Mount Seir, to Elparan, which is by the wilderness. 7 They returned, and came to En Mishpat (the same is Kadesh), and struck all the country of the Amalekites, and also the, that lived in Hazazon Tamar. 8 The king of Sodom, and the king of Gomorrah, and the king of Admah, and the king of Zeboiim, and the king of Bela (the same is Zoar) went out; and they set the battle in array against them in the valley of Siddim; 9 against Chedorlaomer king of Elam, and Tidal king of Goiim, and Amraphel king of Shinar, and Arioch king of Ellasar; four kings against the five.
War has been on my mind lately, because the Amish in Pennsylvania do not participate in it for any reason. With them, it is a matter of faith and frankly, I am impressed by their convictions. How much death and destruction has been the result of warfare? The ancestors of the Amish (the Anabaptists) paid dearly for those beliefs, as thousands upon thousands of them died at the hands of the Roman Catholic church because they would not submit to either a King or an organized religion. War is the ultimate failure to listen to others and to compromise. It is wrong on so many levels and evil in the extreme. May God grant us the conviction to be peacemakers and the knowledge that we are to have only one king in our lives and that one abides in the heavens.
