A new tiling for board games?

Anybody seen this pattern used on board games? There is a mix of cells with different connections, some with four connections and others with six. Also, its dual (if you play in the intersections) has three and four connections. This may be a good playing field for games exploiting the compromise between square and hexagonal boards.

Do you think this would make a good board for a connection game?

Perhaps, but it's still possible to create a deadlock situation. So, some extra rule would be needed (eg, a capturing rule).
