Come to think of things, I ran off a load of tessellating hexagons in 
Turtle Graphics about
2 weeks ago using fekking code blocks.

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>.
