Hexagon Star Chess is a training chess game with mathematical logic and 37 gaming pieces for two players. In the end, the player who takes the last piece loses. First, all the pieces show their colour side. The players use the magnet, which is attracted by the game board in order to turn one gaming piece after the other from the colour side to the black side. Thanks to versatile play options, the game can be used to train mathematical logic as well as number theory, set theory and geometry.
