About this project

This is a three person chess game that adds a new twist on chess. You must be aware of two opponents and their moves. There is an added new piece and some really unique moves. I invented this game April 1995 and have worked out all the bugs. In April 2009, I copyrighted it. I then contacted Davison, a broker for handling new toy ideas to take it to the next step. Check them out at http://www.davison.com/s_experience/about_davison.html. The next step for Davison is to take the game to the appropriate toy manufacturer for production. Davison already has that toy manufacturer selected, but must produce a prototype and buy all the necessary licensing. This step is the most costly and is the reason for using kickstarter.com to try to raise the funds. April 2012 I had my advertisement made for kickstarter. I am shooting for November 15 to have Tress in stores in order for people to have them by this Christmas. This is your chance to be a part of something big! No one knows where chess originated for sure, but if you help get this started, you can know where Tress started and that you had a part in it!
