Although the method can be adapted to hexagonal-spaced boards, doing so is a significant extra effort that I do not consider justified. Generally, hexagon and triangle spaced games are unstable and/or inferior compared to square spaced games. Even if this is not the case with Glinski's in particular, games based upon hexagonal spaces still have no special interest to me personally.

Feel free to apply the method to all games that interest you and publish the results to the benefit of other likeminded individuals. That is what I most want people to do. To learn it and use it. That is why I published it. No need to publish it if I just do it myself every time someone asks.
