Designed to be the truest simplest hexagonal isomorphism of the time-honored game of chess Hexes Chess is played on 54 hexagons rather than 64 squares. Though it uses fewer spaces and fewer pieces than conventional chess the hexagonal format greatly increases the mobility of each piece. If you are familiar with the rules of chess you will find Hexes Chess to be logical and intuitive. Even if you are new to chess the illustrated rules sheet will have you playing in minutes.
I really love this game. The pieces move in additional defined ways, beyond those allowed in traditional chess. That feature, the additional bishop and the use of 3 colors on the game board all add interesting dimensions to the game. It is also highly focused and plays pretty quickly, which works for me because my life is busy. The rules are well written and readily comprehensible and the board and pieces are well made. I would highly recommend it.
