    I fell in love with Hive a few months ago and being a fan of chess, I've enjoyed reading strategy books in the past. On a whim I searched for one on the relatively knew game of hive. The bad news is that there's only one. The good news is that it's great. It's a large printed book, i think 8.5x11 so there's a bunch of info on every page. There's also a ton of very nice diagrams throughout as well ( I think 300 plus?). All aspects of the game are covered ( the most helpful to me being a novice was 'beginners mistakes' and 'opening theory'. If you haven't played hive, try it on boardspace for free. I did for a while to see what it was like. Once hooked, I was thankful that the only book out there was this good.

    A couple of weeks ago, I purchased "Play Hive Like a Champion" in the PDF format. I printed it out, and made a 3-ring binder of it. The book is easy to use with an excellent table of contents and useful game index, well laid out and easy to understand. All aspects of the game seem to be covered in some depth over 211 pages. Readers of this book should never be at a loss as to figure out a sound move in virtually any situation, as middle and endgame strategy and tactics are covered in depth. Basic openings are categorized and analyzed to a useful level, although this is an area which would benefit from supplementary analysis, probably deserving of a separate title and publication. Official expansion bugs Mosquito and Ladybug are included in depth, and some unofficial additional bugs are also discussed. While reading the book, I joined BoardSpace.net and began playing the Dumbot and other human players. The book gave me such knowledge and confidence that I was soon beating the... More > Dumbot at least 80% of the time, and also greatly enjoying my games with other BoardSpace members. I had owned a Hive set for a few years and played only a few games before finding this book. Reading it has been a revelation, and greatly increased my understanding and enjoyment of the game. Respectfully submitted, Steve< Less
