Go game 3D
What a headache... :)
Did anyone see a variant of Go on a 2d board with triangles, pentagons or hexagons ?
Must be interesting.

I dont know much about Go, but I do know that you cannot cover a region of the plane with pentagonal tiles.
If a polygon has n sides, each angle is 180-360/n degrees, and this must be a factor of 360 if some number of these polygons can meet in a point. The only possibilties are six triangles, four squares or three hexagons.
Other, irregular shapes can be combined to tile without gaps. They would be even more of a headache!

True, thanks Philip.
I created a thread at GoDiscussions on that topic, a member mentioned another discussion :
It reminds me that I played 3d Blokus a few months ago, it is a quite strange game also, particularly compared to 2d-squared Blokus !

You're right about one thing, Thib, the headache! I get one just thinking about it ;-)
