4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Addendum to Chess, January 12, 2008

This review is from: Hive - The Original (Toy)
This game is quite chess-like in the nature of its strategy, which I like. Hive is a seemingly simple game, with the straightforward rules about movement and a small number of types of tiles. It isn't easy to win, though. The biggest challenge is reconciling that none of the pieces on the board will ever leave once they're placed, and that some of your pieces (one placed) may never move again due to the dynamics of the hive (which your player tiles collectively create).

In the end you have a durable, highly portable, thinkers game. It's great for trips, indoor weather or afternoon lulls. I find it to be unique and fun, and would recommend it to most anyone who's enjoyed playing chess or go.
