I had sorted these name of books. Hope these Chineses characters would display properly.

About the rules of Three Friends Chinese Chess:

1. Whoever is first to checkmate one of the others  gains control of that player's forces. 

2. Add Flag and Fire. 

Flags are put on the NW and NE corners of the every palace. 

Fires replace Soliders stationing on the second or the forth column.

3. The triangle zone in the center of broad is named Ocean. Chariot and Horse are not allowed to pass this zone.

Other triangle zone in every conrer are named Mountain and City.  Cannon is not allowed to pass this zone.

4. Other rules are similar to ordinary three-handed chess.
