  1. Wouldn't you need three bishops?
    Edit: yep he covers it

  2. Yooooo no wayyyyy you graded the PR flag!!! Ok you sold me, I need to join your patreon

  3. Two ideas for how you could get different colored hexagons

    1. Can't you buy uniform board game pieces that are hexagons?

    2. You can definetely buy tiles meant for tiling walls and floors that are hexagons and matt. Might be dificult to find ones that aren't too big or small.

  4. You've really opened up a whole new way of thinking about other games. What would hexagonal baseball look like? Football (soccer)? Football (rugby)? Football (football)?

  5. Grey has a *beard*โ€ฝ We need to campaign to add this to the stick figure!

  6. I KNEW IT! I was so sure you could play hexagonal chess!

  7. HEXAGONS ARE THE AGONS(bestagons)

  8. I'm sure @GMHikaru would love to try this ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I wish i knew Grey was looking for a chess board, i would have loved to make one out of wood.

  10. This is the only channel I'd support with more financial support then a premium view

  11. Once again, CGPHexagon proving that hexagons are not just a shape, but the BEST shape.

  12. Not happy with the multiple membership levels. Saw that a video as restricted, "members only", clicked "become a member", became a member, and it was STILL restricted, because apparently I needed a higher level.
    In the browser, I now see it is clear when you click a video what level is required, but in the smart TV app it's not.
    You make great videos, and apparently I was even prepared to become a paying member, but this was a bummer ๐Ÿ™

  13. But of a random question, but do you still use Firefox?

  14. Hey gray. How can I earn the rank ( ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŽ bonus videos ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŽ) ???

  15. The pawn situation with the move to and still be able to capture is blowing my mind I NEVER KNEW THAT

  16. Shouldnโ€™t pawnsโ€™ capture move translate into diagonals in the same way as the bishops?

  17. Grey had to find a reason to give away signed hexagons and still make a video out of it

  18. I loved learning about Hexagon Chess!!

    Over time I felt increasingly disinterested in getting to know more about Chess than I already do (i.e. pretty, pretty basic) cause like… It feels as if everything is already kind of discovered? Or should have been? Not to mention computers, player AIs, etc.

    It's been around for such a long time and it seems like everytime I make an opening move, an experienced opponent knows EXACTLY what it is and exactly how to counter and knows what I'm going to do, how it's going to go – or, I mean, I could always be unpredictable but that would only happen by making a mistake, I guess, which is _worse_. So I don't feel very excited to learn how to play better… But this seems like a shake up in that it opens the game so much that creativity is more rewarded than mechanical manipulation of known patterns.

  19. Jesus the queen is so godlike here. She guards two tiles out from herself in every direction.

  20. I have been playing chess my whole life and never knew about en passant ๐Ÿ˜ข

  21. Please bring back comments Grey.

    The comment section is one of the many factors that contribute to why the Youtube watching experience is so special to me. Reading what other viewers' thoughts on the video, both the good and bad, then also reading others' thoughts on those comments does really elevate the experience.

    As a student who doesn't have time for other social media sites, nor the processing power to even engage with them (my devices are always slow), Youtube is the only site I often use. Putting Reddit as the main way views can engage in discussion is inconvenient at best, and at worst, destructive.

    This video is a clear example; it is mostly just regular praise for the content, and maybe one or two thought-provoking comments, but that's it. You can never expect most people to put more thought and effort than the bare minimum to comment, of course, but that's what reply chains are for. Without it, the video, while still very well-made of course, just feels so much emptire; it is not much better than turning off your comments entirely.

    I dont't even know if you will, or can, read this, and you do not owe your non-patron viewers like myself anything, but I do sincerely hope you'll really consider going back on this decision. I'd rather deal with bots then take away the magic of the comment section.

    Sincerely,
    An avid, non-patron fan.

  22. I come to this comments section to speak not of this video, but the one that comes after: one-in-a-million. Having to do so only because the comments on said video are turned off. I get CGP Grey's mentality most of the time, but not this time… not now.

    I will say it is very cool that you uploaded all of the results videos days in advance.

  23. I thought Grey building the hex board off of tiles is insane, little did i know that he is going to record and animate like 100 videos for rock paper scissors

  24. Im here to say that your newest video(s) are amazing, I can't imagine the effort required.

  25. Mad props for making a new video with so many different outcomes… That must have been a hoot to keep track of ๐Ÿ˜‚

  26. Iv played chess for years and i never knew about the en passant rule.

  27. One thing I don't like is that the pawn should clearly capture using the diagonal rules instead of to the side.

  28. i have never played or understood any form of chess and somehow this video made a lot of sense

  29. the problem with this is that chess was designed to be on squares. Grey mentions that hexes are often used to get rid of diagonals. I think then, if you convert chess to hexes, you should get rid of the diagonals. such a big change may seem outlandish but if your going to try and upgrade the game with the board, reflect that in the rules, otherwise the hexes don't really serve much purpose.

  30. I have watched this so many times, and only just now noticed that at 1:02 Grey says "That's a hexcelent question" ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

  31. @2:21 I know a Sting replica when I see one! Cause I have one too! Does it glow blue when hexagons are near?

  32. I recently started watching your videos and I really like the poetic way that you speak sometimes.

    Plus your opinion on things is quite interesting to listen to beyond the manner in which you speak.โค

  33. To reach AGI
    change the decision matrix from M= ( alternate options)
    N= (criteria) to
    m6/n3 (architectural options) / ( alternative criteria)
    that will solve the 3.15 second glitch in the current โ€œdecision matrixโ€.

    M6/N3 = The Sigma Matrix
