 By Graeme C Neatham. A9 HexaChess (Imperial Grand HexaChess). Large variant of Grand Hexachess. (Cells: 169) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]

This hexagonal variant looks intriguing, and I'm a bit surprised that so far it has received no tests on Game Courier (presumably it did by now on ZoG). The pattern of the board (vertical hex alignment, rather than horizontal) and the peculiar way the pawns move might prove a refreshing change from McCooey's or Glinski's variants. My biggest concern is that a well played game might take a relatively large of moves on average.
