Game Play. The pieces in play define the playing surface, known as the Hive. Play begings with one player placing a piece from their hand in the centre of the table and the next player joining one of their own pieces to it edge to edge. Players then take turns to either place or move any one of their pieces.

Moreover, how do you win the hive game?

Bring out spiders early on in the game as they are very good as short runners when the hive is still small. Keep an eye on your opponents holding set, even if it looks like you're in a losing position, you can turn the game around by blocking spaces if they have no hoppers or beetles to place.

Additionally, how many hives are in a colony? Honey Bee Colony. Honey bees are social insects that live in colonies. Honey bee colonies consist of a single queen, hundreds of male drones and 20,000 to 80,000 female worker bees. Each honey bee colony also consists of developing eggs, larvae and pupae.

Besides, what do ladybugs do in hive?

The Ladybug is a versatile Hive bug. It moves up over other pieces and down into unoccupied spaces. It can change direction when moving, so it can get to positions that other pieces cannot quickly reach. The Ladybug is sometimes referred to as the Knight of Hive.

Who goes first in hive?

I generally go with the rule of "whoever puts a piece down first is the first player." Agreed - my rulebook (2007) says "Play begins with one player placing a piece from their hand in the centre of the table and the other player joining one of their own pieces to it, edge to edge." At BoardSpace, White moves first.
