Over the last couple of months I've played and acquired a fair number of games that feature hexagons. This surprised me because I've been playing a lot of Euros and wargames with area-movement or point-to-point boards up until recently. I put together this list to share my madness. Feel free to add or comment.

The game that inspired this list. Love those hex tiles. Great two-player game that I enjoy and that I've played a lot over the last two months.

Rings, circular markers, a board with lines ... and ... hexes. Another great two-player abstract that's been getting a lot of playing time recently.

Marbles and more rings. The rings are laid out in a hexagonal pattern to start. Like YINSH, a GIPF project game.

You knew there had to be a wargame in here somewhere. This one plays well and relatively quickly once you get the hang of the system. Pre-gunpowder era.

Another GIPF project game, this one with a hexagonal board. Have only played a handful of times, and this one was harder for me to grasp than the other GIPF project games.

The first of the Musket and Pike system games from GMT. Version 3 rules are much better than the original. (Version 4 rules were released recently). This series will be hitting the table more in the future.

Designed by David James Ritchie, the designer of Lost Victory (above). Good treatment of the 1940 campaign in the west in WWII. Lots of options to explore alternate histories.

Designed by Mark Simonitch of Hannibal: Rome versus Carthage fame. Very good game of the summer and autumn battles in Ukraine in 1943. Moderate complexity, unit densities kept reasonably low.

The battle for Normandy. This game is kind of a throw back for me, as I haven't played a lot of detailed hex-and-counter simulations in a long while. Great looking maps. I'm setting up one of the scenarios for the first time today.

Hex tiles again.

This one was a friend's add-on to my last purchase. We played it once so far with 4. It was interesting; I'm sure it will hit the table again.
