The purpose with this page is to show how one might build a Hex board using a small number of graphic elements (GIFs), glued together with HTML.
You may copy freely from this page, including the GIFs, but I would appreciate if you give me some credits.
In David Boll's Hex FAQ, the columns are named by letters A, B, C, ... from left to right, and the rows are numbered 1, 2, 3, ... downwards.
The "vertical" player makes the first move. I prefer the "vertical" player to use the red pieces, and the "horizontal" player to use the blue ones. Remember: Red Sun raising/setting vertically; Blue Water flowing horizontally.
The GIFs I used to build the Hex board, are:
|top1.gif||left half||single width|
|top2.gif||right half||single width|
|nox.gif||empty hexagon||double width|
|redx.gif||red piece||double width|
|bluex.gif||blue piece||double width|
|lefte.gif||left edge||single width|
