Play Hexxagon Online For Free!
Hexxagon is a board game which first appeared in 1990 as an arcade video game by The Leland Corporation. According to online resources, the game was invented by Dave Crummack and Craig Galley in 1988 and was called Infection. It was first programmed on Amiga, Commodore 64, and Atari ST. The game is purportedly in the public domain now.
The game play is similar to that of reversi.
Two players take turns placing pieces on a 7x7 board. In the starting position, each player has two pieces of his color around diagonally opposite corners of the board. Player take turns to move any one of their pieces to any square up to two steps away, including diagonally. If the piece is moved to a neighboring (in any direction, including diagonal) square, an additional piece is left on the starting square of the move, so the player has one more piece on the board after the move than before. If the piece is moved to a square two steps away, no new piece is added. After the move, all enemy pieces adjacent to the piece moved change to its color.
The game ends when one or both of the players can't move. The player with the most pieces wins.
The board may be of several different configurations, by having certain squares filled (not playable).
