  1. I think there at the very end you meant to say that you were "Quinting" not "Squinting". Ha Thank you for another great review. Much appreciated!

  2. damn i wish fetty wap funfact was legit

  3. I didn't even need to watch this, I know the rules, lol. Thanks for the enterntaining video! Also, the digital version of the game is pretty cool, I think it's only about $7 at npcinpc.net

  4. @ 5:32 you make it look as though you are placing an opposing piece against the opposition which is not allowed. A little misleading.

  5. Two games that come with me everywhere I go are Hive, and Sprawlopolis.

  6. I got food poisoning in Hampi, which eating a chicken pizza watching The Big Lebowski.. I did see an elephant have a bath though – that was nice. It's not an interesting story, or relevant, but YOU read this.

  7. Have a pocket that can barely fit a smartphone. 'game Doesn't fit in the pocket'' XD. Also, chess is massively overhyped. Only facts.

  8. If you don't have pillbug expansion(Like me) and still want to have same tactical element of lifting, you can play with limited lifting spider house rule. Now spiders can lift other bugs and other spiders like pillbug can, but only exactly to the opposite side of the spider. This limited lifting ability is alternative action to spiders 3 step move. So spider either lifts or move in one turn.

    Limited lifting spider house rule:
    -Spider can only lift bug exactly to opposite side of the spider.(180 degrees over itself).
    -It cant lift the bug if the lifted bug is pinned, if the hive would brake, if the space of spider's other side is already occupied with other bug, if the lifted bug is stacked with other bug, if the lifted bug is most recently moved by the opponent, or if the spider tries to lift the bug though the narrow gap of stacked bugs(beetle gate).
    -If the spider successfully lifts enemy bug, that bug is rendered immobile for opponents next turn. Immobile bugs cant move or use their special ability nor they cannot be moved by other bugs. Other bugs can move over immobile bugs though. Friendly lifted bugs are not rendered immobile.
    -Spiders can lift enemy and friendly bugs, queens and other spiders if all other above requirement are met.

    I also highly recommend Hive tournament rule: Queen cannot be placed as first piece, but must be placed at least in players turn 4.

  9. I love the Stan Smith’s Quinn!! I had a pair around 1980 and they got better with age. My wife got me a pair a year or so ago and I’m still breaking them in!

  10. what about the pillbug?
    "Roly Poly" here in the US

    yes, the ladybird beetle!!

  11. "ants are bullshit" lays down in a bunch of live ants

  12. Amazing and lovely video /recommendation and instruction. Thank you so much

  13. Hi there,

    What happens if both opponents bees are covered by a beetle and surrounded fully by other bugs. It would get to the point where no one could move at all? Is their rules to prevent this?

  14. What a great vid! Thanks for doing a destination game review!

  15. Hive is the 'Crokinole' of abstract board games.
