Sunflower HexChess. Hexagonal Chess in-the-round. (Cells: 120) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

I like the new tessellation that this variant uses; there are so many
possible tessellations out there, yet most Chess variants use a plain
square tessellation.  Only sometimes do we use a plain hexagonal
tessellation; far rarer is something radical such as a board using
triangles, parachess [1], or this board.  

I applaud you for trying out a new tessellation!

This game looks interesting, and the relative piece values make for several unequal yet fair trades. How did you calculate them?

I usually use 3 different methods of assessing piece values and then take an average. Here though I must admit to merely rounding the values calculated by Zillions of Games.

Do you people think The trade potential would go up if there was a pawn with value 1.5? hehe, don't mind me much, I just like numbers a bit too much, hehe. Seems a good game. :)
