I'd love to make a game out of these. Not sure how I would label them, perhaps clear adhesive stickers.

A nearby Teacher's store had a set of insect stickers perfect for this.

I agree, support the guy and buy Hive. I made a conscious decision to do so actually. Yes, you can job him and build your own, but come on. He came up with it, I know it's a bit high price wise, but I chose to support him.

I end my public service announcment now.

I was just jazzed by hex tiles for gaming...that's cool.

$8.95 + shipping. I guess if you ordered two the cost would be pretty low.

Ok, this will make me publicly admit something that I have never admitted to before - but when I'm sitting and "doing my business", if the floor has hexes in the tile or linoleum, then yes, I imagine pushing stacks of counters around on the floor. And I dare say that if you, as a wargamer, have not thought the same, then you are a liar! shake

The new Hive tiles are Bakelite. While ceramic is very strong, I'd wonder how effective it could be as gaming tiles, since I'm sure it stands a chance of chipping and flaking while being transported.

I know the designer of Peaceful Resistance has sold me 1" wooden hexes in the past - He had a lot made for his game, which didn't sell as well as he hoped, so in the past at GenCon I've been able to score some bags of those pieces, which are quite nice. They can easily be decorated (and even wood burned). If anybody wants, I can try to find contact information for him.

One other thing to consider is this very cool site:
http://www.incompetech.com/

You can print our your own hex sheets right here... print them on sticker stock, and you could easily apply them to other bits. Print them on sticker stock and then use some one-sided laminate on them, and you could even mark on them with dry-erase markers.

I agree with the idea that Hive is too cool to copy. I met John Yianni, and he is a genuinely super nice guy. Support him and his cool game by getting a copy - I've been playing the online version when I take a break, and have already gotten a bunch of games in with my new Bakelite set - and I *really* like it.

Ciao!

Russell
