Hmmm...neat.  Like an asymmetric RPS played in three simultaneous games,
each played until one player has a three-point lead.  (Asymmetric
because two wins give you one point, but one win gives you two points.)

It might be nice to add to the two-player version that if both players
Push, or both players Pull, the piece doesn't move.  It's easy enough to
figure out, but I did have to figure it out, and you were explicit about
two Passes.
