From the Manufacturer
We are proud to announce the special edition Hive Carbon. This game is still the same as our award winning flagshipHive® game, but with a Carbon twist which is an alternative to the existing set of pieces for those who prefer a classic black and white colour scheme. Included with this edition will be the infamous mosquito piece an a very special lady bug piece.
Hive Carbon is a new edition of Yianni's Hive that plays the same as that classic two-player game but with stylin' black-on-white and white-on-black pieces instead of the multicolor bugs running around in the current edition. What's more Hive Carbon will include the mosquito piece that was previously sold separately as well as a new ladybug piece the details of which Yianni has yet to describe. The ladybug will also be available in the iPhone version (iTunes link) of the game but Yianni hasn't announced when that update will take place. Description written by W.
