How to Play:
Two players choose either the black or white tiles. Players take turns adding their tiles to a collective field called "The Hive". Newly added tiles cannot touch their opponent's pieces - except for the first moves of the game. By the fourth move, players must place their Queen Bee tile somewhere on the hive. The rest of the game is a decision about which pieces to add, which pieces to move, and where to move them. Once added to the board: The Ant tiles can move anywhere they want on the outside of the Hive; Grasshopper tiles can move in a straight line, jumping over whatever pieces are in their way; Spider tiles move in groups of only three moves away from their starting space in any direction; Beetle tiles can move one space at a time, and can move on top of other pieces, keeping them from moving.
How to Win:
The player who can surround their opponent's Queen Bee is the winner.
