"Love this game!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I love Hive! Easy to learn and very portable. I much prefer it to chess. I was able to teach my mum the game in about 5 minutes. I originally had the pocket version but I found I actually enjoyed playing with the larger pieces and they are still easy to take with you. The reason for four instead of five stars is because this version of the game doesn't come with the expansions like the pocket version does. You can buy them but they are disproportionately expensive. Of course the game is fun without the expansions but I enjoy the ability to add or remove them for variety as I please.

A very fun game with lots of replayability. The pieces are nice and chunky but the game is super portable.

A Game Buzzing With Possibilities

Hive is a highly addictive strategic game for two players 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 black and eleven white, resembling a variety of creatures each with a unique way of moving.

With no setting up to do, the game begins when the first piece is placed down. As the subsequent 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 opponent's queen, while at the same time trying to block your opponent from doing likewise to your queen. The player to totally surround his opponent's queen wins the game.
