Two fellow gamers and I have been experimenting with three player Hex.

If there is a standard way to play three player Hex, it is this:
https://books.google.com/books?id=UX6PAQAAQBAJ&pg=PA172&lpg=...

But, it's not a very exciting way to play. We tried tinkering with that basic formula (e.g. disallowing moves that would eliminate a player) but nothing really improved it that much.

By far the best versions we have found are versions in which the pieces are shared or semi-shared. These are good games.

Triskelion
Chromatix

Full disclosure:
I designed Chromatix, so I guess I am a bit biased in its favor.
