App description: ******************************************

Hex Strategy is somewhat like a cross between Risk and Go. It is a surprisingly simple game to learn and it takes about 5 minutes to play. You can play against the computer, or against a friend at the same iPhone.

-=How to Play=-
Two identical sets of tiles (one red, one blue) are made up of random numbers from 1-20. Both sets are equal in size to the number of turns you have for the board. Each turn, a tile from your respective set is chosen at random and removed from those remaining. Your turn ends when you place the tile onto any free space of the game board. If the number on the tile is larger than the enemy tile(s) you place it adjacent to, the color of those tiles are turned into your color, and the total sum of all your tiles is updated accordingly. The (default) objective is to have the largest sum at the end of the game, though this can be changed to the most territories instead in Game.

Hex Strategy is a brilliant casual game design by Powerise Interactive, and if you haven't yet played this excellent game, you're in for a treat.

Can I assume that the 1-20 sets repeat after your first 20 tiles are placed? Or do you just get random numbers?

It seems that from mid-to-end-game, whoever draws the larger numbers is going to be able to capture (and re-capture) more tiles (especially at the end of the game...)
