Quick and fun to play.
I would suggest more sizes, maybe a hole in the middle to work around.

Deserves front page

This game is fast, fun and addictive. More over, it is unique. Nowadays it's hard to find a simple low tech high concept strategy game that hasn't already been done. Kudos. This should be on the front page. Smooth game play, good sound and graphics, but mostly a great idea.


This game would be lots of fun, if it were fair. As it is, there are two main glitches. One, if the computer wins and you say play again, the computer can make as many as four free moves to start before you've made one, forming a large disadvantage for the player. Two, repeatedly I have lost because hexagons have not exploded at the proper turn. What I mean is, say I have a four dot hex, and it has three filled. Mid game, many chains could occur. It is my turn. I click it, thus making it full, and it should explode. Instead it just stays full, waits until it is the computers turn, and then explodes for the computer's benefit, chaining everything against instead of for you.
The graphics are smooth, and it is generally okay, but those two bugs can ruin a nearly finished game.

Coool game

havnt enjoyed a nice and simple game like this in a while got high score on medium 18 moves lolz wasnt too hard just pay attention to your board and how many touches so that you can cause a chain reaction etc
