It's always more difficult for the striped pieces to solve a given area because the pieces can only be rotated by 180° instead of multiples of 60° for the usual pieces. In some cases the required direction of the stripes for a given shape prevents or allows a solution. Here are some set of pieces. Click the numbers to see possible constructions.
|Number of Hexagons for Each Piece||Two-sided Pieces||One-sided Pieces|
|No Stripes||With Stripes||Total Area||No Stripes||With Stripes||Total Area|
|2 or 3||4||7||19||4||10||27|
|3 or 4||10||21||79||13||35||133|
Another version of printed pieces with compressed hexagons instead of stripes is shown below.
