Hexodus Chess is a very nice PC implementation of hexagon chess, a difficult chess variant that is most popular in Eastern Europe. The game is basically chess played on a hexagonal board. Needless to say, this requires quite a different mindset and strategy than regular chess ;-) This freeware version coded by a Polish programmer features a decent AI that offers a good challenge for novices and intermediate-level players, although it can't compete with expert players. There is also a very nice mutiplayer support that allows you to play the game against a friend via hotseat or over TCP/IP. If you enjoy chess variants, Hexodus Chess is one of the best freeware ones you are likely to find. Highly recommended, especially to beginners like me who have a hard enough time with regular chess :-)
