Hexxagon is a strategy game played on a purple hexagonal board. The object of the game is to have the majority of your colour discs on the board at the end of the game. It resembles Reversi / Othello. Hexxagon is one of the games that "take a minute to learn, and an entire life to master".

A move consists of either a "growth" or a "jump". A growth is when you select one of your pieces and place a new piece in an empty adjacent space, including diagonally. A jump is when you select one of your pieces and move it to an empty space that is two position away. This includes diagonals.

Once placed, any opponents pieces that are adjacent to the new piece (either through growth or jump) are flipped the to the moving player's colour. If one player is unable to move, or all his pieces are flipped, the game is over. Count to find who has the majority of the board.
