Chaturanga on a board with 46 pentagonal cells. (8x5, Cells: 46) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Ben Reiniger wrote on 2010-08-26 UTCSo 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.
