The use of polygonal designs is motivated by the desire to avoid the selection of contiguous units in a sample from an ordered finite population. However very little is known about polygonal designs that have block size 5 or more. We present new polygonal designs with blocks of sizes 5 through 10, including the first designs with block sizes 9 and 10. For block sizes 5 through 7, we identify, with one possible exception, all values for the number of varieties for which a polygonal design exists.
