I invented a Go-like game for hex boards that doesn't suck

    It’s called Blooms. I wrote a comparison between Blooms and Go focused on how life works in each.

    Check it out. I’d love criticism.

    Seems fantastic. I hope Richard adds it to the site!

    Thanks ypercube. That means a lot.

    I’ve had a look too and it definitely looks promising. Would love to test it here. :)

    Cool. I’m looking for a place to get it implemented online. LG is my first choice but Richard is probably too busy for it. Other recommendations welcome.

    It seems more dynamic than Go, extremely tactical on small boards. I wonder how would it be on a big board, what kind of strategy will emerge. :-)

    Me too. it’s been getting more strategic for me on hexhex5 as i’ve played more and I’m starting to see through the thicket of tactics. But I probably won’t see the full shape of strategy until I get it implemented and a bunch of people start playing.
