Allegiance is a pretty interesting spin on Chess, Checkers and Backgammon. This game adds a third player to all three games, making for some interesting play on these classic games. From the game box: With the addition of a third player and the greatly expanded gameboard, Allegiance provides new and challenging dimensions to the classic games of chess, checkers and backgammon. Each of the three players may compete individually, or two players may form a temporary "allegiance" to defeat the third player. But beware of betrayal, there can be but one winner!
