I am planning on tiling a 13'X13' room with 13" tile and would like to lay the tile diagonally, but am curious if this will increase the number of tile I need. What is the calculation for figuring out how much tile I will need that figures in all the half tiles along the edges?

Get your actual square footage and add about 15% for a diagonal set. Unless you just plain luck out you wont get half cuts along more than two adjoining walls.
