The second set of hexagonal dominoes.
Game board for hexagonal dominoes.
The hexadominoes (hexagonal dominoes) – is an unusual game
conception. Its main feature is the fact that playing elements (pieces,
tiles, printed cards) have
six-sided shape but digits are applied only onto four
opposite sides of playing elements.
The hexadominoes term as a name of this variant of dominoes game was chosen because playing
elements, on which digits are applied onto six sides, are usually called
“hexaminoes”. But in principle, the hexadominoes game is the same by
digits as the quadradominoes
game. It differs from the quadrilateral playing tiles due to the fact that game
board squares and hexagonal playing elements are six-sided shapes.
The hexadominoes package consist of two standard sets (each set has 24
playing tiles, and digit combination from 1 to 3). They differ from each other by presence/absence of
dark circles placed on back sides of playing tiles, and they differ
from each other also by contrast orienting arrows, which are located on
face sides of playing tiles.
The hexadominoes package arrangement is the same as the quadradominoes game
arrangement. It means that two colors of each set designate proportional
groups in the content of sets, which have proportional digit quantity,
and also that their digits have proportional orientation in relation to
orienting arrows. In this case, if these playing tiles are placed on the game
board in accordance with orienting arrows’ direction, players have equal
odds to win and game interaction between digits is optimal.
The game board is included in this hexadominoes game package. And this board cells have
form which is the same as the hexagonal playing elements form.
The light and dark hexagonal cells are alternated in specified order. Horizontal
cells have numerical designations. The game board central part squares
are marked by a contrasting color.
The possibilities of location of these two sets’ hexagonal dominoes and two proportional groups'
hexagonal dominoes, which belongs to a content of these
sets, in the initial playing positions are shown in figures 1 and 2.
The arrangement and configuration of playing tiles and game board cells may be other ones.
The proposed design – is only experimental model, which gives
possibility to become acquainted with the hexagonal dominoes (hexadominoes) concept.
