Hi everyone,

I was asked to write some articles on Hive, and I would like to begin with the evolution of the game. Does anyone know what were the differences between the 1st and 2nd edition of Hive? I've checked the image gallery and all I could find was that both editions used wooden hexes but used a slightly different colouration as a background for the 'White' and 'Black' player. Were there other differences? Does anyone has some pictures comparing those two?

Thanks!

Hi,

It's just a simple reprint with a other box.

Hive First Edition utilized wooden pieces with metallic shiny stickers in silver and blue. One known issue with this version was that the metallic stickers were difficult to distinguish in certain lighting conditions, which is why the next version used a more matte version of the stickers.

That's true.
Also there were only 1000 of the first edition made. And they were all hand made by myself, my wife and some good friends. One thousand wooden hex blocks sanded and Twenty-two thousand stickers stuck on one by one, by hand. It was fun but a lot of work

Thank you John. That's amazing. I just hope you were not the ones who put stickers on the second edition or painted the bakelite That would be a tremendous work. But when we come to numbers, it seems thatt Carbon edition is also limited. If there are another interesting anecdotes regarding Hive history and evolution, I would gladly hear them out.

If interested I can take some photographs comparing the first and second editions, like I did with:
