-Is it legal to move the Beetle on top of the Queen?
-Also, if the Beetle is on top of the Queen, and you surround the Queen then is that a legal way to win?

Just had these questions from a recent game...

The beetle can move on top of every piece in the game and since you can place pieces of your color next to this stack as long as the beetle is on top, you can surround the queen this way. Last move could then be moving the beetle in the remaining free space, but that is not mandatory.
Hope it helps

Just remember, the Beetle 'climbs' on top of any insect piece and therefore stops any insect it's on top of by moving. It therefore 'climbs' up and 'climbs' down in a space no other insect can move to, apart from the Grasshopper who similarly 'Hops' over and into places no other insects can move in to.
