Hex Hex XL

HEX•HEX™ is a fast-playing, stand-alone card game for 3-6 people. Players hurl Hex after Hex around the table, constantly redirecting, deflecting and altering


Fast and fun. This game is all about non-stop player interaction. Every card you play is an attack or a back-stabbing tactic. A good amount of the rules are right on the cards so there’s a small learning curve (one game ought to do it). After that, it is pretty simple to play. Heck, even your non-gamer friends will enjoy it.


A single hand lasts from 3-5 minutes. A game from 20-30 minutes. But more often than not, groups play sessions running 3-5 games long as players create new and different ways to be ‘mean’ to each other. (check our list of favorites) It’s no strategy game. But if you’re looking for a great ‘beer & pretzels’ style game with a fun mean-streak. This is it.


For those who already know and love the game, new and previous fans alike have told us that they couldn’t imagine playing the game without the variants now.
We think that says it all.
