The new Carbon twist is added as an alternative to the existing award winning game Hive, for those who prefer a classic black and white color scheme. Included with this edition are four additional pieces, the Mosquito, and the very special Ladybug. The objective: To surround your opponent's queen bee while trying to block your opponents from doing the same to your queen bee. Each player has 13 tiles; representing 7 different insects. Each insect has a unique way of moving (as in chess) and resembles the movement of the insect depicted on the tile. Game with simple rules yet challenging in depth.
