Tessellated hexagonal grid?

Not sure whether you really want to know or not ;-)

Richmond puts his finger on it really.  Most of the properties of a graphic polygon don’t relate to geometric features of the polygon itself - except when it is a rect.  So, as Richard says, tiling them or otherwise changing properties of target and adjacent hexes on the fly will involve what the Bash Street Kids called "hard sums”  <https://www.beano.com/posts/beanotown-confidential-bash-street-school-staff-room>.  

If I do go with hexes, I’m thinking the lazy way (my way) would be to simply show hidden hexes rather than allow allow true creation.  That would mean having a hard edge - which on the plus side would at least prevent Richmond’s flat earther’s falling off.

Best wishes,

David G
