I don't know if anyone has tried this before, but here is a hex grid version of the Lights Out puzzle. It is a small one and not very difficult to get all of the hexes either white or black, but it is interesting trying to form patterns with it. When I have time I will make a larger grid.

Feel free to reverse engineer the code, it is very basic, but uses the same principles that could be used to make a more complicated puzzle.

Nice one Adam! :)


Moreover, in my collection there is a puzzle called Last-Out, which seems to be a hexagonal version of the Lights-Out puzzle...

I haven't spent any time on it yet, but it should work in a similar way!

Unfortunately, Last-Out is not a puzzle. It is just a 2-player game (the standard version of Nim with several piles).

Aaaawwww..... no wonder I couldn't get it to do similar things to the lights out... (I had no instructions)
It's a pity really, it could have been a neat game as shown in the hex grid above...

Thanks for the info Jaap! :)

I didn't either until I found the instructions online somewhere. I have attached the manual to this post.
