Board Description

This is not a standard Wargear map. It is not RISK at all, but uses the game engine at WarGear to create a completely different game.

The goal of Hex is to create a connected path of hexes between your sides of the board.

To do this you will have 1 unit to attack with each turn in the territory "Attack Hex" that is by itself on the left-had side of the board. Use this unit to attack a neutral hex. Note that you cannot capture a hex your opponent owns. (Actually there will be 2 units there, but since abandonment is off, you can only use 1.)

When you have a path fortify all your units from one side to the other and attack your opponents capital hex off to the left of the board from there.

These games are usually decided long before a path is actually completed. If you find yourself on the losing end in one of these situations please use the Surrender option to end the game. (And then start another!)

Hex is a fairly well-studied game. Some links to strategy and such:

If you enjoy this game then also try Octagons. Other pure strategy games available on WarGear are Go-Gear, Five, Seven and Ten - Propogate,

Thanks to Hugh for prompting me to make this board.
