Who would like larger boards for hex?
  • lazyplayer at 2019-02-02

    I’ve been experimenting with 19x19 and I’m liking it very much.

    Why no add 27x27 and 39x39? The numbers are obtained in this way:

    sqrt(2*13^2) = 18.3 -> 19x19

    sqrt(2*19^2) = 26.87 -> 27x27

    sqrt(2*27^2) = 38.18 -> 39x39

    11x11 doesn’t fit this pattern but it’s simply a traditional board size.

    Who likes this idea?

    Larger board would also allow us to use some handicaps, so everyone can play with everyone.

    The only difficulty is that to visualize the board, it could be hard. Well, I think the players can learn to use zoom feature of the browser.

    I’d rather an intermediate board, I think 15x15 would be a great size.

    That too. The more, the better.

    I would rather go step by step, that is, 23x23 first.
