Re: HEXATTACK 4.0 (Turn 5)

faubi's 5 tried to grab emlightened's 1, and if two hexes try to grab each other then neither gets grabbed. I'm fairly sure that this is incorrect. If a hex is grabbed by two other hexes, none of the grabs move it, so my 1 doesn't move. However, faubi's 5 was grabbed by my 1, so it should try to mo...

Re: HEXATTACK 4.0 (Turn 5)

Wouldn’t faubi’s 5 get grabbed by emlightened’s 1? faubi's 5 tried to grab emlightened's 1, and if two hexes try to grab each other then neither gets grabbed. edit: faubi's 5 is also the reason why emlightened's W didn't manage to grab their 1. The 1 was being grabbed by both emlightened's W and fa...

By the way- I added "left" and "right" to the board, to hopefully reduce the number of incidents where players confuse left and right. Considering how many of those we've had already. (which could end up kind of ruining the game) What would be even better is to make a diagram sh...
