This simple little bug adds a whole new dimension to the Hive game. Its movement pattern is great to pair up with others in the game in a defensive or offensive role. I would recommend this to anyone who has Hive. If you don't have Hive, go buy it now. For such a simple appearing game it can be quite a challenge yet still easy to learn. It is all skill and strategy based with no luck of the draw involved, kind of like Chess without the limits of a board.

This is the third expansion piece for Hive Carbon. This playing piece is of the same high quality as the other Hive Carbon pieces.
This is written assuming you already know the base rules. The Pillbug can move one space like the Bee, or, it can use it's special ability. The special ability is two move an adjacent piece, friendly or opponent, two spaces, one on top of the Pillbug, and then to an adjacent empty space, provided you do not break the hive or free movement rule.
This definitely adds more challenge to what is already an interesting game.

This Pillbug expansion really adds a fun new angle to the game. You are now able to move your opponents pieces using this. If you are new to Hive, I would wait until you are familiar with the base set and the previous two expansions before adding this one.
