Hex Oust Strategy Guide -Tutorial Games

Jesus said, "There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends." John 15:13 (NLT)

Tutorial Game 1
Learn why capturing every stone to make many small groups is not in your long term best interests. In this game White captures most of Black's stones, yet Black wins...

Tutorial Game 2
Learn why playing on the vertices (where two sides meet) is generally a bad idea. In this game White plays better than Black but because their only live group is on a vertex White loses. The vertices are a1, g1, m7, m13, g13, a7. It is not always bad to play on them but they are too vulnerable to attack. Also note that vertex is the singular of vertices.

Tutorial Game 3
An exciting game where either side could win.

Tutorial Game 4
Learn the value of a joint attack. Black is in a winning position towards the end of this game, but White makes a brillaint joint attack to turn it around.
