Hexgame

A long standing tradition in the Goff family is to find solutions to the “hex game”, a puzzle game made with plastic pieces that my wife Sue and I began playing with friends in the 1970s. The game was marketed as It’s Hexed, and is not to be confused with the board game game Hex invented by John Nash. In the game, the player must fit 12 pieces into a rectangular region with no overlaps or missing space. It turns out there are over 2000 unique ways to do this, and among family and friends we have obtained and cataloged over half of them. Have a try in the web-based version below.
