Q: I’m new to Neuroshima Hex. Can you help?
A: Here is clyve’s boot camp tutorial, and here’s an exhibition match that Justin Fletcher and I played in public, to help people learn. And here’s a public spreadsheet, maintained by Trung Truong, with matchup probabilities and strategy thoughts. Last, here are the rules online.
Q: How do we make challenges?
A: Each player should create two games, one against each of the two players below in the list (which wraps around). Thus, everyone will play four games each round.
When you create a game, either
Use the matchup chart in the original post and roll a random pairing using the link below the chart (in the original post). If you take this approach, then name your game something like “AT (blue) prolix (doom)” so that your opponent knows which army to use without having to visit the thread.
Pick an army and name your game something like “AT (jungle) prolix (?)” so that your opponent knows to choose an army.
Q: What if I think that the random matchup sucks?
A: Everyone gets one mulligan to use during the round that will reroll the matchup (no matter who rolled it).
Q: How does the tournament proceed?
A: Anyone who loses all four games in a round is knocked out. If no one loses all four games in a round, then all players with the least cumulative wins are knocked out.
