Hex

AKA "Nash"

Hex is a connection game for two players. Easy to learn though very challenging to master, its gameplay is "pure" strategy with no element of chance and no possibility of a draw.--To truly call yourself a strategy gamer, you have to have played classic Hex at least a couple of times.

Hex was invented by Danish mathematician Piet Hein in 1942 and independently by Princeton mathematician and game theorist John Nash in 1947. This is what very smart guys do for fun!

This set contains both John Nash's version of the game played on a 14x14 grid of cells and Piet Hein's preferred 11x11 cell grid.

Note: John Nash was the subject of Ron Howard's Academy Award winning film, A Beautiful Mind.
