NoStepOnDeez Hextraction AY Trap Tile 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
3 notches on 3 consecutive edges 3 4 No No

From description: "A center path LR randomizer with traps and side reroutes.
Side orientations turn this into a JC or DL tile with one trap path."
No real clue what that boils down to though, will test.

Advanced Flip Flop Tile

Zack Freedman Hextraction Flip-Flop Tile 2
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
3 notches, each separated by 1 side 1 6 Yes No

Like a Flip Flop but with the top side edges open.
These top edges act like a lil DC and essentialy force the flipper
to go in the opposite direction for the top center entrance.

All 6 notches 1 6 Yes Yes
Card? Text
Yes Setup: Tile must be oriented as shown.
Whenever a ball falls through, turn the wheel 60 degrees.

This tile requires a premium membership to download.

Not a trigger despite acting like one. It's also missing the effect star.
It's a J tile that gets rotated with every ball that falls through
the slots that would be closed on a normal J tile.
Need to try it in practice to see how that goes.

Angry Crab Tile

hpalinux Hextraction Tile: Angry Crab 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
1 notch 1 5 No No

Top left and right act like a lil DC tile.
Balls from top entrance get trapped, but a ball from either
side will knock it out the opposite bottom exit.
Need to print it to actually test the physics.
I like calling it the Crab Trap tile.

Asterisk Tile

Picture of Asterisk Tile

Zack Freedman Hextraction Basic Tiles 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
All 6 notches 1 6 No No

A simple straightforward tile that just send balls to the opposite edge.
If two balls are stuck on either bottom left or bottom right channel,
balls coming from its corresponding top channel will instead fall
through the bottom middle edge.

Asterisk Tile With Hole

Yes When a ball enters the hole: don't destroy this tile.
If a Backrooms Exit is on the board then roll that ball on it.
Otherwise, create one.

This tile requires a premium membership to download.

Not a trigger despite acting like one.
Requires at least one Backooms Exit Tile in the virtual pool.
First line of effect text is not relevant because of the rules update that
came out at the same time. Hackjaz made a fixed version of the card.
Don't want to judge it before giving it a try in practice.

Blank Tile

Zack Freedman Hextraction Basic Tiles 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
All 6 notches 1 0 No No

This is a tile template and was not meant to be printed.
If printed, it's a really effective road block since it needs to
be removed either with the 3 balls rule (which likely requires
coming from all 3 top edges) or with an effect tile like a
Red Hot Steel Ball or Hammer.

Bomb Tile

Picture of Bomb Tile

Zack Freedman Hextraction Cartoon Bomb Tile 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
3 notches on 3 consecutive edges 3 1 No Yes
Card? Text
Yes Trigger: If three or more balls are trapped inside,
destroy this and adjacent tiles.

I recommend theethetree's inlayed star version, otherwise
the star acts as a ramp for balls with momentum.
Clears out some space on the board once it traps three balls, though
one ball on the exterior or another tile that can destroy it will
safely defuse it.
Official house rule variant is to make it blow up when destroyed
in any way, which lets you do chain reactions.

Boomerang Tile

Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
4 notches, all but the top and bottom 4 2 No Yes
Card? Text
Yes On Play: Return a non-Boomerang tile to a player's hand.

A way to clean the board and let you slowly reposition
tiles or reuse good On Play effects.
Once on board it's a J tile but with the notches not allowing
you to make a dead end.

theethetree Hextraction - C+merge tile 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
All 6 notches 6 6 No No

Also comes with a mirrored version.
A sharp turn on one side and a straight, wide, and sharp
merged together on the other, which should funnel balls from
all three covered entrances.
Like a DR tile with an extra sharp turn.

CCC Tile

Yes Trigger: Remove ball, destroy last tile it touched, move
this tile to its slot; destroy this tile when it reaches top row.

Eats it way up the board until, leaving a lot of room behind it.
I feel like I want to see it in practice before rating it more.

Copycat Tile

Lykrast Hextraction Copycat Tile 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
All 6 notches 6 4 No Yes
Card? Text
Yes On Play: Choose a tile on the board,
copy its "On Play" effect, but from this tile
(if possible)

Lets you reuse any on play on the board to double down on
powerful effects or just to get another use of something
like a Jerk, Swap, or Wrench.
Effects that call out a feature of the tile that it doesn't
have (like an arrow for Subspace or Gravity Storm) fail.
Copying the Copycat does nothing (to prevent endless decision
loops and shenanigans with Spooky tiles).
If the cat is center, it acts like a lil DC.
If the cat is bottom left (mirror for right), top left and center
go bottom right.
If the cat is top left (mirror for right), top center and right go
bottom center.

A lil DC but with a magnet hidden under one of the turns that traps balls
that go through it. Same kind of hidden information as the secret tiles.

DC Flipper Tile

Zack Freedman Hextraction Basic Tiles 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
All 6 notches 3 4 No No

Essentially 2 J Tiles stuck to eachother, with 2 wide turns that don't cross.
Connecting two top edges turns it into essentially a roadblock.

DCI Cut Tile

MMDaemon DCI and DCIcutTile 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?

A DC tile with a straight channel going through it.
It probably does some funky stuff with low momentum balls,
but haven't tested that out.

DIC Tile

Picture of DIC Tile
Author Link Pieces to print
Zack Freedman Hextraction Basic Tiles 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
All 6 notches 3 6 No No

A straight surrounded by two sharp turns.
If the straight is oriented diagonally, then one of the sharp turn
connects two top entrances, which will cause balls to get stuck.

DK Tile

Card? Text
Yes Virtual
Activate: Create a Day tile overwriting a Night tile or vice versa.
You can't activate more Day or Night tiles this turn.

This tile requires a premium membership to download.

It's best to have the same number of Day and Night tiles
(with some in the virtual pool).
When facing left (mirror for right), top center goes bottom left,
and top left bottom center.
Not judging till I try them in practice.

Detonate Tile

Lykrast Hextraction Detonate Tile 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
All 6 notches 6 4 No Yes
Card? Text
Yes On Play: Destroy each tile that is touching one or more balls

Removes every activated trap on the board alongside anything with
a ball stuck on it (a single ball can be touching multiple tiles,
in that case both are destroyed).
Then it's like a skewed Peace tile. If the lone exit is facing
down, everything funnels to it.
If it's top center, then it's just a straight.
If it's top left (mirror for right), top left goes bottom right
and top right goes bottom center.

Divert Tile

Picture of Divert Tile

andrewtho5942 Divert Tile 3
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
1 notch 1 5 Yes No

Each of the arms can be open (long side towards exterior)
or closed (towards interior), giving 4 ways to place it.
If both arms are open, it will trap the first ball that comes
and close both arms.
If both arms are closed, top path will randomly go bottom left
or right, while top left and right act like a lil DC.
Need to print it to test it properly.

Double Trap Tile

Picture of Double Trap Tile
Author Link Pieces to print
Zack Freedman Hextraction Trap Tiles - Double and Triple Trap 1
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
4 notches, all but the top and bottom 4 2 No No

A J tile that traps the first ball that comes through.
If oriented to have the top middle entrance, then subsequent balls can get stuck
on top of the trapped ball. You can free it with a third ball, but it isn't reliable.

Flip Flop Tile

Picture of Flip Flop Tile
Author Link Pieces to print
Zack Freedman Hextraction Flip-Flop Tile 2
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
3 notches, each separated by 1 side 1 3 Yes No

When the flipper has one side facing top left, balls exit bottom right,
and vice versa. Direction alternates with every ball that passes through.
If a ball attemps to exit through a blocked exit, the mechanism
jams until that ball is freed.

Card by andrewtho5942.
Lets you temporarily block a path or set up a future turn
with a tile from hand.

Yes Trigger: If possible, rotate an adjacent tile one notch in either direction

A repeatable way to rotate tiles to alter pathways or free balls
from traps or blocked entrances.
No idea how balls travel through it though, need to print it to see.

Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
All 6 notches 1 6 No Yes
Card? Text
Yes On Play: Move all tiles one slot in direction of arrow,
destroy those that would leave the board

A nice way to mess up the whole board and make a lot of space.
The arrow can point in any of the 6 directions.
All tiles are moved sequentially as you want as long as each
tile is moved to an empty space or destroyed when it is moved.
When placed, top left goes bottom center, top right goes
bottom left, and top center is random between those two.
Can be mirrored.

HC Tile

Overwrite only if necessary.

Requires at least 6 Hex Candles in the virtual pool (preferably one of each).
I don't know how balls roll on it but it has a giant hole.
When all 6 candles are adjacent you win, so make sure you get
to be the 6th ball to fall in the hole.
Will need to see it in practice to judge.

Greatly speeds up the race by letting people rush through its path.
I don't trust its structural integrity with PLA though so
probably won't test it out for a while or until I make a variant
with an alternative, bulkier frame.

J Tile

Zack Freedman Hextraction Basic Tiles 1

A simple wide turn. There are 2 orientations that turn it into a roadblock,
either by blocking all 3 top entrances, or trapping balls on a top to top path.

This tile requires a premium membership to download.

I think it was mistakenly uploaded twice, with one version

Watch your eyes!

I don't plan on trying this tile, but I'm putting it here because why not.
Lets you launch balls out a top entrance with a spring, which will
probably cause all sorts of weird situations as most tiles aren't designed
to be entered from the bottom.

Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
3 notches on 3 consecutive edges 3 2 Yes Yes
Card? Text
Yes On Play: Take the key from the back
Once per turn: Lock or unlock the tile if you have a key (keep it)

Card by Lykrast.
When unlocked, it's like a straight that affects momentum a bit.
When locked, it'll stop balls. Unlocking it will then release the trapped balls.
This essentially lets you secure a path to victory just for you, very powerful.
If there are multiple in the pool, then just one key allow you to use them all.
If you orient it to link top right to bottom left, balls will need
momentum or a hit from a second ball to overcome the hump.
Can be mirrored to reverse that bias.

If large side is up, it will act like a lil DC that slows balls.

a ball can be freed with a ball from the other side with enough momentum.

Notches force bottom middle to be open.
If bottom left is closed (resp. right), top left and middle
go to bottom middle and top right goes to bottom right.
If top left is closed (resp. right), top middle goes to
bottom left and top right goes to bottom right.
If top middle is closed, both entrances go to bottom middle.
Some shenanigans may always occur because of the weird layout.

SpaceKotik Hextraction Railroad Switch Tile 2
Notches Orientations Open edges Mechanical? Effect?
1 notch 1 4 Yes No

Funnels all of its top entrances to bottom middle, but the switch
will block one top entrance at a time.
When a ball comes through the top left, it will move to block
that entrance, and same for top right.
Top center will do the same as the open side entrance.
You can also place it to block top entrance, causing the first ball
from a side entrance to decide the first direction.
If balls get stopped on a blocked entrance, they'll slide once a ball
actually goes through the tile, immediately setting the direction back.

If both arms are closed, top path will randomly go bottom left or right

A combo tile composed of the Teleport In and Teleport Out.

A great way to stall out a path that's getting too close to
