Puzzler with a tactical twist
Hexxagon 2 almost feels like a strategy game, turn based and asking for a relatively complex set of thinking in advance logic and planning considerations. Adding to the flavor of strategy is the fact that you're playing against an opponent who's pieces are not exact copies of your pieces neither in terms of their movement nor in the style with which they eat the opponent's units. This can lead to a very interesting and different play style, no matter if you're playing with the slimes or whether you're playing the crystals. The ultimate goal of the game is to occupy as many hexagons as possible, and the winner is either the one that manages to have the more hexagons completed by the end the table is full, or, manage to eat the opponent's pieces to the last one. So, with an unequal balance and pieces that have different properties, the emergent puzzle strategies you could play out are multiple, making the game a brain twister to keep you busy for long hours, Best played in short sessions, this game can truly be a cool brain teaser for your lazy breaks or for puzzler/tactics aficionados.
