The only regular polygons which will tessellate are those with 3, 4 or 6 sides. But all irregular triangles, all irregular quadrilaterals, 15 classes of irregular convex pentagons and 3 classes of irregular convex hexagons will tessellate. In addition, there are concave polygons with different numbers of sides which will also tessellate.
