Rules summary

This page comes from BGA wiki, and has been written by BGA players community. Feel free to edit it!

Each turn, you may either place an insect or move an insect. All insects in play must be contiguous at all times.

The first player's Queen Bee to be surrounded on all sides loses. You must place your Queen be by your fourth turn.

Movement rules:

  • Queen Bee: Can only move one space
  • Beetle: Only one space, but it can move on top of another insect
  • Spider: 3 spaces in one direction
  • Grasshopper: Moves to the next open space in a straight line
  • Soldier Ant: It can move an unlimited amount along outside borders

Expansion Pieces:

  • Mosquito: Uses the movement ability of any piece it is touching
  • Ladybug: Travels two spaces on top of other pieces and one space back down
  • Pill bug: Can move a single space, or move a piece currently adjacent to it to another adjacent location

This is just a brief summary of movement rules. This has a comprehensive overview of movement rules: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/371756/hive-detailed-review
