You'll probably want to get comfortable working with a game on a hex 
grid. You can usually treat it as a skewed 2D grid. There are plenty of 
articles on developing hex games.

There are a few examples on the Pygame site, but most are either 
incomplete or very deep. I haven't seen any clean examples out there 
that show you how it's all done with Python code. But I know there's a 
few people working on that sort of thing.
