Press info: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 blue and eleven silver, resembling a variety of creatures each with a unique way of moving.

With no setting up to do, the game begins when the first piece is placed down. As the proceeding pieces are placed this forms a pattern that becomes the playing surface [the pieces themselves become the board] unlike other such games, the pieces are never eliminated and not all have to be played.
