This review is from: Hive - The Original (Toy)
This is a terrific game for two people which requires chess-like strategy, but it can be learned in just a few minutes and played in less than 15 minutes. My 7 year-old child plays this with friends and they love it. So do my husband and I!! There is no board or set up. The game starts with each player placing an insect tile on the table which creates the playing field. In addition to a queen bee, both players have four other types of insect tiles each of which has its own way of moving about the hive (grasshoppers "jump", beetles "climb", spiders move 3 spaces in any direction and soldier ants "move about the perimeter". The object of the game is to completely surround the opposing players queen bee while you prevent your opponent from doing the same to you. One wrong move and watch your queen bee quickly surrounded!
