Any game whose primary focus is the octagon-square tiling can be added here.

There's a closely related geeklist for games where the topology is the same, but the emphasis is on the lines of the grid rather than the octagons and squares.

Octiles uses this grid, only slightly modified to use exactly 18
octagons and move the edge squares for aesthetic reasons. 18 is
the complete set of line-crossing patterns for an octagon.
