There's nothing pretentious about Six!, the latest release from Gram Games. As puzzlers go, it's so unassuming that it took me some time to even realize why it was called what it was. Somewhere, my high school geometry teacher is now sobbing softly.
That's because the game gets its name from the hexagon that you try to maneuver toward the bottom of the screen by removing a series of blocks of different shapes from beneath it. Think of a virtual game of Jenga, except that instead of trying not to knock the tower over, you're trying to make it smaller while keeping the hexagon from tumbling off the side.
Many games make reviewers claim that they are easy enough for anyone to pick up and play, but this one really is. Yet there's just enough going on that it requires thought and strategy, which is good, because it gives us a chance to roll out these Six! tips, tricks, and hints for beginners to get you moving that hexagon like a pro.
