The best games with hexagon grid ⬡ 2022

Looking for a game that takes place in a hexagonal grid ⬡? Then we have just the thing: The 30 best "Hexagon Grid" games.

This is used for laying pieces of the board against each other and/or placing or moving pieces. Probably the best-known game with such a board is Settlers of Catan, but more recent games such as Gloomhaven, Terraforming Mars or The Castles of Burgundy also rely on such boards.
