Suggestion: hex on a 40by40 square board
  • kocbftn at 2018-07-08

    The way to play hex on a square go like board is to have a go board with a line running through SW to NE diagonals of each square of the board representing that path of diagonal connectivity. So all directions of connectivity would be shown by lines on the board. Unlike in a go board where the diagonal connectivity of cells is not marked by lines. Playing big board hex is better on a square board because of spatial efficiency of square compared to diamond shape board.

    What do you want us to do?

    I dont think you are in a position to do anything except maybe give me your thoughts on my idea. This suggestion is directed mainly at the devs.

    If you use the design scheme button you will find a board with pieces on intersections, so that would have the lines marking connectivity. But unfortunately for you it’s diamond shaped... If you have any graphic design skills you could probably make the image and get it added in with the other schemes.

    "spatial efficiency of square compared to diamond shape board"

    Not really. The diamond shape is equivalent to hexagon tiled board. Looks more efficient to me.

    40x40 is enormous. 19x19 already takes a very long time.

    If we’re going to add a new size I’d rather 15x15
