HEX·HEX(TM) is a fast-playing, stand-alone card game for 3 to 6 people. Players hurl Hex after Hex around the table, constantly redirecting, deflecting and altering the Hex's power until finally someone runs out of options and becomes HEXED. In the end, the winner alone will command enough Voice to control the group and lay down the law... creating a new rule for the next game. Hex Hex XL is the new, larger core edition of our popular Hex Hex game and will replace both the 1.5 base game and Hex Hex Next. As you might surmise from the title, the new, larger game will include a larger, but streamlined deck of 150 cards taking the 'best of' cards from both sets. In addition, the game will have 2 NEW variants with new cards, tokens and even 5 wooden obelisks to support them. The variant Hex Hex Vexed includes 25 new 'law' cards and 12 new tokens, and is perfect for a one-game sitting, where you want to see a few classic HEX·HEX 'Laws' come into play DURING play. Each Hex cast becomes a specific type of Hex - that delivers a curse upon all the players who become Hexed that hand. The other variant, Hexen Stix, adds a lightning-fast reflex element to game play - a ring of hexagonal shaped obelisks that mete out penalties for those who do not rise to the challenge quickly enough in grabbing them and can reward those who do.
