Longtime readers know that I'm a fan of abstract puzzle games. I'm always on the lookout for the next one that I can wrap my head around. HexaGONE looks like it's right up my alley. It's a hex-laying game where you're trying to complete different patterns before your opponents do. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
In hexaGONE, players take turns placing hexagons from their hand with the intention of creating hexagon sequences which match one of the face up Sequence Cards. The more complicated the sequence, the more the Sequence Card is worth. If a player manages to match a sequence, that player collects the Sequence Card, scores the points listed on the card, and a new Sequence Card is drawn. The player with the most points at the end of the game - as determined by the sum of his or her Sequence Cards - is the winner.
hexaGONE is sort of like abstract Scrabble. Instead of creating words (and then losing a friendship over an argument about whether yex is a real word) players strive to create sequences which match any of the various face-up Sequence Cards. The sequences on the Sequence Cards range from simple 4-hexagon sequence to more complex, longer ones.
The campaign is more than 3x its funding goal with still 22 days left to go.
