Description of Hive with AI (board game)

Hive is a board game from John Yianni with a difference. There is no board! The pieces are added to the playing area thus creating the board. As more and more pieces are added the game becomes a fight to see who can be the first to capture the opposing Queen Bee.

The soldier ants battle to keep control of the outside of the hive, whilst the Beetles climb up to dominate the top. Spiders moving into holding positions as the Grass Hoppers jump in for the kill. Keeping one eye on the hive and the other on your opponents reserves, the tension builds as one wrong move will see your Queen Bee quickly engulfed... game over!

The main features of this application are:

-Ability to play against Artificial Intelligence with 6 Computer levels. The expert level is really challenging and only advanced players should be able to beat it.

-Online mode shared with https://en.boardgamearena.com (the largest boardgame table in the world!). Turn-based and real-time games are available.

-2 players mode (Pass and Play)

-Possibility to save/load multiple ongoing games

-Game notation can be copied to clipboard

-Undos are possible and unlimited

-Hint system (activable in the menu) to see how the AI would play in your situation

-Tutorial to help learning the rules or possibility to download rules as pdf

-Explanations of why illegal moves are illegal

-Optional tournament rules (no queen on first move)

-Display of stacked pawns (with a long click)

-Switch the view to see either from black or white side

-Possibility to change background

-Pinch to zoom

-Translated in 16 languages: English, Spanish, Italian, German, French, Russian, Polish, Greek, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Catalan, Chinese, Dutch, Portuguese (Brazilian) and Czech. Do not hesitate to contact me if you want to help translating in a new language!

P.S. Thanks a lot to Povilas for teaching some Hive advanced strategies and thanks a lot to all the translators :-) :-)

If you know the physical game, this is a faithful digital implementation with no gimmicks, superfluous graphics, or obtrusive ads. If you have never played Hive, it\'s a phenomenal game that fans of chess and shogi will love--try it out!

Exactly the same as the board game. Simple controls, great tutorials and no ads. The monetization is very reasonable, the 3 expansion pieces are $2 each. These pieces add a lot to the game, but it\'s still very fun without them. The AI is totally competent on normal. I haven\'t tried online play quite yet so I\'m not sure how that performs, but it\'s worth a download whether you\'ve played the board game or not before.

I love the app! I do think it would be good if the difficult/expert levels didn\'t have the potential moves outlined. At that point you don\'t need that feature and it makes you think more to have that removed. This is date time for my husband and I after baby is asleep...with the app I can get in extra practice by myself :) very well-made app. My husband pointed out he feels as if we are being nickeled and dimed in order to get the extra pieces.

Finally, single player Hive. I wish the moves were animated, but can\'t complain.

Very good implementation of the board game. Appreciate the range of AI\'s to compete against, and like the upgraded graphics. Nit-picks: Did note that repeating the same move on both sides 3 times does not result in a draw. Also, the jump from difficult AI to expert is very significant in comparison to the change between the others.

The problem noted in my previous review seems to have resolved since I reset the statistics. This seems a fine version of the table game so far. I\'ve only played up to medium AI difficulty and haven\'t played online or pass-and-play. Some animation of the pieces moving would help my slow brain comprehend the AI\'s moves better, though: I find the instant moves to be a bit difficult to follow even though the to- and from-spaces are marked. Controls are sometimes difficult, too
