I used a similar process to make my own board for Connect6 (a variant on
Gomoku), as well as a hex chess variant I developed to play with friends.


One website I found that was helpful is:
http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/. Partway down the page is a hex PDF
generator. My game called for a roughly rectangular grid of hexes, so I
just set it for the size I wanted; for a hexagonal array, just make a
bigger array than you need and trim it.
