Hexagon Squares Animations

This animation collection illustrates some of the ideas in Clark Baker's article, Hexagon Squares.

It serves two purposes. First, these animations provide a reference for how several calls would be danced in Hexagon Squares.

Second, they demonstrate the assertion made in the article that every 4-couple call has an unambiguous Hexagon equivalent, provided that the call has a well-defined traffic pattern. In other words, all calls work. You don't have to make any special rules to dance 4-couple calls in Hexagon Squares. In all the examples below, the 4-couple version of the call was animated by hand. The Hexagon version is the same animation, transformed mathematically into its Hexagon equivalent.
