Up in a hive in that tree over yonder,
The Queen Bee has a decision to ponder.
Winter is coming, and the hive is congested
To decide who can stay, all bees will be tested!
The Queen shall ask questions, and then she will see
Which of her bees answer most identically.
Those who match answers, with thinking aligned
Will prove they can stay within the Hive Mind™!
Time: 30-90 minutes
In Hive Mind™, players are bees who take turns rolling the die, moving the Queen Bee along the garden track, and asking and answering questions to assess their compatibility with the hive.
Each bee is trying to prove they should stay in the hive by thinking in harmony with the other bees. They do this by answering questions the same way as their fellow bees. The more answers they have in common with other players, the more points they get! Bees with the lowest point totals move closer to the hive door. When one or more bees leave the hive, the game is over. The bees remaining in the hive win!
Questions are based on experiences rather than knowledge, inspiring hilarious and enlightening conversations.
Whimsical, charming artwork featuring the Queen and bees brings the world of the hive to life.
Up to twelve players can join in a single game of Hive Mind™, making it an obvious choice for large families, parties, or gaming groups.
Created by world-famous game designer Richard Garfield to be a memorable experience for any family or any group of 3 to 12 players.
