Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hex is a board game played on a hexagonal grid, theoretically of any size and several possible shapes, but traditionally as an 11x11 rhombus. Other popular dimensions are 13x13 and 19x19 as a result of the game's relationship to the older game of Go. According to the book A Beautiful Mind, John Nash advocated 14x14 as the optimal size.The game was invented by the Danish mathematician Piet Hein, who introduced the game in 1942 at the Niels Bohr Institute, and also independently invented by the mathematician John Nash in 1947 at Princeton Universityshow more
