Protect your Queen and trap your opponents - a highly addictive strategic game for two players. With no board it can be played on any flat surface and the pieces in it all have a unique way of moving.

Players: 2

Play Time: 20 mins

Ages: 9+

There is no setting up to do. The game begins when the first player puts down a piece, and subsequent pieces must be connected to the expanding 'hive' so that the pieces themselves become the board.

Each piece moves differently. Ants scurry around the edge of the hive, grass-hoppers can leap over other pieces, while the slow and stately beetle can climb on top of other pieces, pinning them in place.

This means that each has its strengths and weaknesses, and the pieces you choose to bring out (and when) allows for a huge variety of strategies.

Unlike other such games, the pieces are never eliminated and not all have to be played. You must always choose between bringing out a new piece, or moving one of those already in play.

With play that is simple yet strategic, coupled with quick and set-up free play time, Hive is a fascinating abstract game that is entirely it's own animal - or in this case insect.

Hive Pocket comes with the Mosquito and the Ladybug expansions. As such, it contains 26 hexagonal tiles, all of which are slightly smaller than those in the original games, for greater pocket-ability.
