This new piece adds quite a lot to an already great game. This piece shook up a lot of the strategies that I used in playing Hive. For me it has worked very well as a defensive piece and has slightly extended the lengths of games.

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.

It's a nice paradigm shift for the game - one can now actively move an opponent's piece. This has opened up some interesting game scenarios by using the Pillbug as both an offensive and defensive weapon.

I love this game and this expansion adds a whole new dimension to it, my favorite expansion by far.

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 expansion to Hive really adds a new layer of challenges to the original game. Playing with the Pillbug will make you have to think in an already thought-provoking game.

This hex is a great (I'd like to say a must-have) addition to the game. It changes the dynamics completely and allows for longer gameplay.

This is a great expansion to an utterly fantastic game. The pillbug can get you out of some real sticky situations.

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.
