General advice

  • One important advice for novice players to remember: "In Hex, the best attacking move is often to defend." Instead of trying to connect your sides, do your best to impede your opponent.
  • If you play with a strong player and you lose, try to repeat the opponent's moves and observe the responses. This can be a fast way to learn new bit of strategy.
  • Another good way to learn strategy is to analyse games — preferably in your head and not with a program. Talking to senior players is also a good idea.
