## 1-side Corner Tiles

1-side corner tiles are derived from Wang corner tilesets, by reducing the number of different corners to one. In a corner tileset, a corner path affects three adjacent tiles. They are similar to Block tiles, but have a design of maze paths. Like Block tiles, they always match adjacent tiles, without the need for Wang tile calculations.

Here is a complete 2-corner Wang tileset.

By adding unconnected dead-end paths to all empty corners with no path, we create a set of 1-side tiles where all sides are the same.

### Tile-15 Variations

And here are a few tile-15 variations, which are always single sided.

### Stage Array

We can place random tiles in an 18 x 12 array. There is no need to calculate tile index values as all tiles have the same side, and will therefore match automatically.

### Reduced Tilesets

It is interesting to see the effect of using a small number of 1-side tiles.
Note that paths on corner tiles can either join or cross-over at tile corners. The two types of tile design lead to different tilesets to create a balanced maze.

Iif we use a similar tileset to the above but swop edge for corner tiles, a weaving corner maze can be made. See Wang 2-corner tiles.

See Stage for more random Block tile arrays of 2 and 4 tilesets.
