Hex Strategy Making the Right Connections
"Hex Strategy: Making the Right Connections" is a valuable resource for understanding the game of Hex, written by Cameron Browne and published in 2000. The book covers a wide range of topics, including strategy, theory, and computer Hex.
In writing the book, Browne compiled the advice of dozens of expert players at the time, using Richard Rognlie's server and forum. However, given that the book was written over 20 years ago, some of the information may no longer be current. The opening chapter, which focuses mainly on non-swap Hex, is now outdated. While the remaining strategy advice may still be relevant, some of it has been superseded. This is due to the significant advancements in the game that have taken place in recent years, as well as the emergence of highly skilled computer Hex players, who have added to our understanding of Hex strategy since the book's publication. Despite this, the book still offers valuable insights and is a worthwhile read for those interested in the game of Hex.
