MacBethMacBeth is the hexagonal translation of Othello. Place 3 white and 3 black men around one vacant cell on a plain hexboard and start capturing the custodian way, and the stones will carve out the board shown. Because MacBeth is hexagonal, its directions of capture are along straight lines only - not along diagonals. On top of that one main direction is excluded for every cell by the nature of the board. This makes MacBeth somewhat easier to handle: colors do not switch quite that dramatically.
