Hex was independently invented by Danish mathematician Piet Hein and American mathematician John Forbes Nash, the subject of the book and film A Beautiful Mind.

It may be considered as the alpha of all connection games, and according to some as the omega too because of its simplicity and strategical depth and its stubborn resistance to being programmed, at least on larger boards.

Boardsize has always been an issue in Hex. MindSports provides a base-11 applet.

Hex is also implemented on the Axiom Game Engine and can be downloaded from our Axiom page.
