Overview

Hive is a board game with a difference. There is no board! The pieces are added to the playing area thus creating the board. As more and more pieces are added the game becomes a fight to see who can be the first to capture the opposing Queen Bee.

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!

For ages 6 - 11.

This game has been popular online for a while and it's great to see that it's finally getting some attention in the American mainstream. It is an abstract strategy "board" game played with a set of 22 hexagonal tiles. The rules are simple and straight forward and the game is learned quickly and easily. The game has a chess-like feel. Playing time is 5 minutes to an hour; games against better players tend to take longer. Unlike many "new" games that are mired in complex, rule-heavy, gimmicky scenarios, Hive is an intelligent, refined game with an appeal that lies in the depth of the possibilities its balanced design presents. The Hive tiles are well made, substantial feeling bakelite hexagons, and the quality of their manufacture contributes nicely to the enjoyment of the game.
