Hive: Carbon Edition is the same as award-winning flagship Hive game, but with a carbon twist, for those who prefer a classic black and white color scheme. Included with this edition will be the infamous Mosquito piece and a very special ladybug piece.
In Hive, there is no board! Pieces are added to the playing area (any flat surface will do!), therefore creating a board. The object of the game is to surround your opponent’s queen bee while trying to block your opponents from doing the same.
Each player has 11 tiles; representing 5 different insects. Each insect has a unique way of moving (as in chess) and resembles the movement of the insect depicted on the tile. As more and more pieces are added the game becomes a fight to see who can be the first to capture the opposing Queen Bee.
