Hex


Hex is a simple game where two players race to connect their sides of the board. The winner is the first to build a solid path connecting their two sides.

Play locally against a computer or pass the device between friends (*ahem* rivals). Further your game by logging in with Google+ to unlock achievements and play online.

Settings give you the option to create your own customized house rules. Change the board size from 4x4 to 30x30, enable (or disable) first move swap, and set a timer for speed runs.

Such a fun game This turned me on to the game as a whole and even though the AI is incredibly slow at larger boards, it's a fun game to kill some time with at the slightly smaller board sizes. PS, it's really hard at first. Read some tips/tutorials online if you've never played before.

Computer Slow On 11x11 hard, the computer takes upwards of 2 minutes to make a single move. 21 minutes to beat the computer is utterly ridiculous.

Bug report I'd like to report a bug that appears occasionally in the Nash size board. One star off for the bug (and speed of strategy algorithm at said Nash size) and one star off for not having a way other than this to report the bug... I'd give it a five without the bug and no way to report it... I'll eat the speed. Thanks for open source. (why I'd eat the speed issue) edit:spelling
