Product Details

Hive is a highly addictive strategic game that is not restricted by a board and can be played anywhere on any flat surface. Hive is made up of twenty two pieces eleven blue and eleven silver, resembling a variety of creatures each with a unique way of moving. Hive is a board game with a difference. There is no board! With no setting up to do, the game begins when the first piece is placed down. As the proceeding pieces are placed this forms a pattern that becomes the playing surface [the pieces themselves become the board] unlike other such games, the pieces are never eliminated and not all have to be played. The object of the game is to totally surround your opponents’ queen, whilst at the same time trying to block your opponent from doing likewise to your queen. 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! The player to totally surround his opponents’ queen wins the game.
