I didn't see this posted elsewhere, so I am providing a link to a simplified sexagesimal multiplication table, for a 6x10 alternating base system.  Similar to the trigesimal table I posted in another thread, it only includes multiples of 10 in the tens column.

The ones times tens part of the table is very regular.  And the tens by tens is quite compact -- 5x5, so 15 unique products to remember.
