my preference would be

individual hex boards i can move at will to make the game changable.

Maybe 50 or would that be too cost prohibitive.

maybe 3 inch x 3 inch
printed

Both actually

I will need them produced I obviuously will just print them for the prototype.

More testing has revealed 20 to be sufficent. (per game)

You can make 'em!

Greetings!

I've been messing around with Paint.NET and there's a pretty cool HEX plug-in you can use. There are lots of options for how the hexes look and how big you can make 'em. If you're not familiar with Paint.NET, it's a free paint/image manipulation program. I've heard it compared to Photoshop, but I can't say if it does the same things because I've never used Photoshop. Paint.NET has always seemed to pull together for me and it's FREE.

If you ARE familiar with Paint.NET, just grab the HEX plugin and install it according to the site's instructions. Just for grins, create a layer and make it black. Now select yellow as your primary color. Duplicate the layer (so you have two layers now) and on this new layer go to Effects > Render > Hexagonal Grid

Have fun!
