So this is really (locally) a hexagonal game, since each 'square' has six neighbors; is it different (globally) from a standard hex setup?

EDIT: Ah, I missed this discussion a couple years back.  I think perhaps the original comment by Gilman answers my question most fully: it's not a 'standard' hex setup.  It seems too that the piece movement is not standard for hex games, but I don't see anything that forces us to use the pentagonal layout for ease of visualization.  It is neat though how the pentagons have been laid out.
