"Hecks" is a version of the two-player game "Hex", in which hexagonal tiles are replaced by randomly generated irregular polygons. In turn, the White and Black players pick a tile with the purpose of creating a full bridge between opposite sides of the board, which need not be declared in advance. Choose the number of tiles and their color, then share the mouse with your opponent and start playing "Hecks"!

When clicking tiles, "white" and "black" alternate; however, the color of an already-clicked tile can be reversed by reclicking it. Clearly this operation would not be allowed during a regular game, but it can be used for assigning the color of the opening move.
