A game buzzing with possibilities.
Mechanics Tile Placement
Hive is a fantastic game for two, played with highly tactile Bakelite tiles. The aim of the game is to be the first player to surround your opponent’s Queen Bee using a team of assorted creatures of both your own and your opponent’s color. Because each creature has its own way of moving about the Hive, the game is sometimes called ‘nature’ chess’, yet simpler rules.
The soldier ants battle to keep control of the outside of the hive, whilst the Beetles climb up to dominate the top. Spiders moving into holding positions as the Grass Hoppers jump in for the kill. Keeping one eye on the hive and the other on your opponents reserves, the tension builds as one wrong move will see your Queen Bee quickly engulfed; …. game over!
