Brusky's Hexagonal Chess

If you had a Java-capable browser, you could play Brusky's Hexagonal Chess here.
Keys "s"=save "l"=load "b"=back once

Yakov Brusky, 1966. Pawns capture forward on like-colored hexes, move forward without capturing to different-colored hexes. If an enemy (not an ally) blocks one forward non-capturing pawn move, the other is prohibited. I did not know how this affected initial double moves, so I did not implement them.
