Has anyone else given any thought to playing on a hex divided board?

I was thinking about a hex of hexes, 3 to a side. Assuming Mages start in opposite corner this has the effect of moving the mages 1 space closer (3 hexes between, vs 4 rectangles on the conventional board, but actually increases the discrete spaces from 12 rectangles to 19 hexes.

I can't think of any immediate gameplay changes and it would make it more open.

First thing to come to mind is that it would affect gameplay of walls. It would allow more walls overall and it would also by the sameway require more walls to close a zone.

It would also make it harder for Forcemaster (and force spell in general) to bash creature in arena's walls.

It would also allow more outpost type cards (10 instead of 6).
