UK Games Expo 2015 – Hive
We stopped by an empty table and sat down to play Hive.
How was it?
Hive is a highly addictive strategic game for two players that is not restricted by a board and can be played anywhere on any flat surface. Hive is made up of twenty two pieces, eleven black and eleven white, resembling a variety of creatures each with a unique way of moving.
It this game, you’re playing and moving ‘bug’ tiles in order to surround your opponents Queen Bee.
You either play a tile, or move one on your turn. When you play one it has to be next to one of your own tiles. Each tile has it’s own way of moving depending what type of bug it is.
The Queen can move one space, the worker ant can move around the outside of the ‘Hive’. The spider can move over over other tiles I think etc (To be honest, I don’t remember :))
While it’s a good game, there are plenty of other 2 player games like this I would rather play. The best thing about this one is that it’s very portable and can be played on almost any flat surface.
