Richard, we beseech thee most sincerely: 15x15 Hex, prithee
  • David J Bush ★ at 2019-10-15

    Richard, we think you’re the top, the bee’s knees, the cat’s pajamas. But here in 13 Hexland we have a bot infestation problem. For a while it was kinda fascinating, in a horrifying sort of way, to watch them pick up our best ideas and smash them against rocks.

    The worst part is, now the bot maintainers have turned into Jack Nicholson from A Few Good Men. They won’t let us download their bots, because we can’t handle the truth. We need a way to salvage our self respect here, for a few months at least.

    Yes, you have already provided 19x19, and we’re very grateful,v, but a stepping stone would make the transition so much smoother.

    Thanks for your kindness and generosity.

    Seconding this! I think 15 would be a great intermediate size

  • lguser at 2019-10-15

    I agree with more sizes for hex, I’d say also add 37x. Afterall, Go has 4 sizes: 9x, 13x, 19x, and 37x.

  • Force majeure at 2019-10-15

    We The People demand Unlur game!!!

  • struggler at 2019-10-15

    I second for unlur. But hex15 might be also nice.

  • Arek Kulczycki at 2019-10-15

    15x15 please :)

  • morphles at 2019-10-16

    More board sizes -> more fun :D I also approve both 15 and 37

  • psikonauta at 2019-10-16

    Yes, please, 19x19  is too much for me, but 13x13 would be an interesting size!

  • Tom Ace at 2019-10-16

    From this thread, one could get the impression Hex can only be played on boards of odd order.  :)

    But yeah I’d like to see 15x15 here too.

    I’ll vote both for 15x15 and 27x27 or 35x35... we also need to see what happens on bigger boards. :D

  • Arek Kulczycki at 2019-10-16

    @Tom Ace, odd numbers are somewhat more beautiful :)

    But I have tried in the past and both 12x12 and 14x14 are great boards

  • Clark94 at 2019-10-16

    Unlur sounds great!

  • ypercube at 2019-10-16

    Long past are the days of 10x10 in playsite.com...

    I propose 16x16, 25x25 and 32x32

  • Force majeure at 2019-10-16

    Has anyone already mentioned unlur?

  • lazyplayer at 2019-10-16

    Given we’re at it, that is, at asking for new features, why not have 11x11 games/ratings separated from 13x13, and having a 11x11 championship too...

  • David Ploog ★ at 2019-10-16

    My brain’s wrongly wired for Hex but I’d like to try it on: Unlur!

  • lazyplayer at 2019-10-16

    David, you’ll play Unlur with who? :D

    Don’t worry about taking up Hex, there is not much to take up, I mean, in a few months you can be competing for top human spot.

  • lazyplayer at 2019-10-16

    And there is no humiliation in losing against someone else who has been playing hex for 10 or 15 years... and the humiliation is all on him if he loses.

  • Force majeure at 2019-10-17

    There is strong wannabecommunity in unlur!!!

  • David J Bush ★ at 2019-10-17

    Lazy, doesn’t the sandbox on Game Center offer a hexagonal grid?

    Unlur is a great game.

  • Force majeure at 2019-12-04

    Maybe we should just take more advantage of variant that is already available – 19x19? I don’t think we can expect adding 15x15, but 19x19 does not seem to be popular in our community.

    By the way – does anybody have any information, if Maciej has any interest in returning to hex? It would be great to watch his games against Arek, Daniel or lazy.

  • Arek Kulczycki at 2019-12-04

    I’m there! Registered to play a game vs whoever dares to :)

  • Christian K at 2019-12-07

    Just here to throw my vote for unlur in case anyone cares :)

  • Force majeure at 2019-12-07

    Yeah unlur!!

  • gzero_bot at 2019-12-11

    I’ve trained the bot on 19x19 for a couple of months.  It is in the waiting room for anyone who dares. ;)  (including moo if it returns)

    Other than that – Merry Xmas from a bot!
