Hive Mini Review
Hive is a brilliant 2-player strategy game, simple in it's design, but deep and difficult in it's execution. I learned Hive on one of my first nights working at Snakes and Lattes and it remains one of my go to games for groups of two.
I am generally not the biggest abstract fan, but there's something great about building the board itself as you play Hive that I really love. The portability of the game (made even more so with Hive Pocket) make it the perfect traveling companion.
