Hive is a board game with a difference. There is no board! The pieces are added to the playing area thus creating the board. 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.
The soldier ants battle to keep control of the outside of the hive, whilst the Beetles climb up to dominate the top. Spiders moving into holding positions as the Grass Hoppers jump in for the kill. Keeping one eye on the hive and the other on your opponents reserves, the tension builds as one wrong move will see your Queen Bee quickly engulfed; .... game over!
‘Hive Pocket®’ débuted at the Nuremberg Toy Fair 2012 and is the seventh addition to the Hive® family since the first wooden print of this very popular and successful game back in 2001.
Since then Hive® has seen many incarnations including the beautiful black and white classic edition ‘Hive Carbon®’
Hive Pocket® is the very same wonderful game but much smaller and compact. Now you never need to go anywhere without Hive® again.
This edition also includes the two expansions to the game ‘The Mosquito’ introduced in 2007 and ‘The Ladybug’ which was added to the Hive® family in 2010.
This wonderful travel version comes with 26 beautifully crafted Hive pieces, includes a very nice drawstring bag and also the two expansions to the game: ‘The Mosquito’ introduced in 2007 and ‘The Ladybug’ which was added to the Hive® family in 2010.
The pieces measure 25 mm across and 10 mm in depth, the whole game weighs only 200g including the bag, as compared to the full size game which weighs 600g.
This version is great for taking on trips where space is an issue or for backpacking where weight could be a problem. Playing the game even on small airplane tables is now easier than ever.
Now you never need to go anywhere without Hive® again.
