Hive: the Mosquito, the Ladybug and the Pillbug

We're happy today to introduce on BGA 3 new expansions to Hive: the Mosquito, the Ladybug and the Pillbug!

If you didn't play Hive yet on BGA, we could say that it's a little like if chess had been brought in the XXIst century to the mysterious insect world. The game is played 1 on 1, using hexagonal pieces matching various insects, and the goal is to capture the Queen Bee of your opponent. It's of course very tactical: an astute sequence of moves can completely reverse the flow of the game at any moment. And the average time for a game is just around 10 minutes!

Hive is a subtle, profound game that will grow on you over time: the more you play, the more you like it. So we strongly encourage you to go beyond your first learning games to really enjoy it! And of course don't forget to buy a copy to enjoy Hive with your friends (ie: beat them).

Here are the main characteristics of the 3 new bugs:
  • The Ladybug moves three spaces; two on top of the Hive, then one down.
  • The Pillbug moves like the queen bee, but it can also take an adjacent friendly or enemy piece and place it on an empty space adjacent to itself.
  • The Mosquito takes on the movement characteristics of any creature it touches at the time.

We'd like to thank a lot Gen42 Games and John Yianni for making it possible to have these expansions here, and of course Cédric Leclinche (vaanatomic) and Antoine Tallotte (Ixxar) who developed both Hive and Hive expansions for BGA!

Backgammon

We are happy to introduce a new classic game on BGA: Backgammon.

Most board games on BGA are modern, but many players like to play classic games here to enjoy BGA functionalities such as replay, ELO, statistics, trophies... Thus we are happy today to propose them this new classic game for two players.

Backgammon is a dice game. The goal is to move checkers around, then off the board. The first player to get all of his checkers off the board wins.

On your turn, you roll 2 dice, and you can make 2 moves accordingly - one move with one checker, and another move or with the same checker or another one. You can only move on "free" positions, meaning positions that are not occupied by 2 or more of your opponent's checkers. If you land on a position with only 1 checker belonging to your opponent, you "hit" it and place it on the middle bar (and it has to start over from the beginning). Finally, if you roll a double (for example 2-2), you can do 4 moves with that value.

This very nice adaptation of Backgammon for BGA has been developed by Hubert Borderiou using BGA Studio. A big thank you to him for this nice work!

Enjoy!
