Game of the Month…

We are excited to announce that our new Game of the month is... Hive Pocket!

Hive Pocket game

This is a hugely enjoyable game of strategy where the pieces themselves become the board. Boasting twenty-six pieces bearing the images of marvellous minibeasts, players must lay down a pattern that surrounds their opponent’s queen whilst making sure their own queen doesn’t suffer the same fate.

It is for age 9+, 2 players and takes around 20 minutes to play. This is the perfect game for travel due to its portable size!
