Hive: The Game

Hive game

Goat on iceEvery few years, Joey buys me a new homesteading-related game. The newest addition is Hive, a game that reminds me a bit of Carcassonne mixed with chess.

Mom and Mark were kind enough to let me try it out before Joey's next visit. Gotta get a headstart if I want to be any competition at all for my big brother.

My review? Hive is a fast, fun game that I could play all day...if the goats weren't hollering for a honeysuckle-and-oats snack.
