The two most common types of Triple Diamonds are illustrated below.

Triple Diamonds are analogous to Triple Boxes [C1] and Triple Waves/Lines/Columns [C2].

Example: Triple Diamond, Flip The Diamond

Triple Diamond calls are (4 or less)-dancer calls, requiring you to work only with the dancers in your Diamond. The historical application of 8-dancer calls such as Diamond Chain Thru is considered improper at C3A.
