Should have got triumvirate, but may I suggest triarchy (which I did try) also fits 'group of three leaders' just as well and is just as common?

Hi QM, nice quiz. Might I be able to suggest to you that here in the UK, a tricast is a certain type of bet whereby you forecast the first three horses (or dogs) in a race.

A polygon describes a shape with 4 or more sides, therefore a triangle isn’t a polygon - “a three sided shape” would work better

Being entirely pedantic here, but a three sided polygon can be called a trigon.
