    Description

    Hex Strategy: Making the Right Connections

    From the back cover text:

    Hex is a classic board game invented over half a century ago independently by the Danish mathematician Piet Hein and the Nobel Laureate John Nash. It has recently enjoyed a surge in popularity, and continues to fascinate mathematicians and game theorists with its duality of simple, elegant gameplay coupled with mathematically significant complexities. Hex Strategy: Making the Right Connections is the first book to offer a comprehensive look at the game, ranging from its history and mathematical underpinnings to advanced playing techniques. This book focuses on strategy from the player's perspective, and provides sufficient knowledge to play the game at a high level. Annotated sample games, puzzles, and numerous examples of an algorithmic approach to the game are provided, and discussions of strategy are profusely illustrated. Abstract board game players, recreational mathematicians, or simply those who enjoy games and puzzles of all kinds will be intrigued by the many facets of Hex covered in this book.
