HexChess is a reproduction of the most popular hexagonal chess variant created by Władysław Gliński in 1936. At one point there were more than 500,000 people playing this game and more than 130,000 board sets sold. There are still tournaments held in many parts of the world.
The game is played almost exactly like standard chess, except the movements are slightly different on a hexagonal board. Since there are three different hex colors, one additional bishop is needed for each player and each player also gets one additional pawn.
This version of HexChess has five levels of artificial intelligence to play against and a pass and play mode. It also comes with interactive documentation to learn how to play.
