The classic pure strategy game by John Nash and Piet Hein




Hex is an all-time favorite connection game for two players. Can you build a bridge from one side of the board to the other while your opponent attempts to block your path and beat you to it?

NOTE: If you would like to cut the price of the game by $10, you can order an unboxed edition of Hex HERE.

Hex is easy to learn, and its gameplay is pure strategy with no element of chance and no possibility of a draw. To truly call yourself a strategy gamer, you must play classic Hex!

Hex was invented by Danish mathematician Piet Hein in 1942 and independently by Princeton mathematician 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, as well as standard instructions and playing pieces.

Hex is also included in the Abstrategy collection.

Feel free to check out the Hex Neoprene Mat Set prototypes --We may rerelease them at some point in the future.

Fun fact: Nobel prize winning game theorist and Hex inventor John Nash was the subject of the Ron Howard film, A Beautiful Mind.

This version of Hex is a Mystery Kitchen/Let's Play Games production.
