Hive is a boardless, strategic game for 2 players ages 8 and up. The object of the game is to surround your opponent’s queen bee while trying to block your opponent from doing the same to your queen bee.
Each player has 11 tiles, all in all, representing 5 different insects. The players take turns, either choosing to add a tile to the hive or moving a tile in the hive.
Each tile has a unique way of moving (like in chess) and resembles the movement of the insect depicted on the tile. For instance, the grasshopper is the only tile which can jump.
Hive is a fun game to play because of its simple rules, yet challenging for its depth. Hive enhances each player’s skills of strategic planning, tactical thinking and spatial vision. To win, you must play both the offense (surround your opponent’s bee) and the defense (to protect your queen bee).
A nice decorative storage bag makes it easy to carry, store and play anywhere.
