Beesiege

  • Beesiege is a board game involving the idea of an environmental problem CCD (Colony Collapse Disorder).
    CCD is a phenomenon in which worker bees from a European honey bee colony abruptly disappear. Many possible reasons have been proposed: radiation, insect diseases, environmental change-related stresses, Varroa mites and malnutrition, pesticides or a combination factors.

     
    Beesiege is redesigned from Chinese board game called Go game. The objective of the game is to have surrounded a larger total area of the board with one’s pieces than the opponent by end of the game. 
    Here is the rule of play.
    1. Two players—Bees and the effects—take turns placing a game piece of their own pieces on a vacant hexagon hole on the board. Bee moves first.
    2. Once placed, a piece may not be moved to a different holes.
    3. Vertically and horizontally adjacent pieces of the same pieces form a group that cannot subsequently be subdivided and, in effect, becomes a single larger pieces.
    4. Only pieces connected to one another by the lines of hexagon on the board create a group;pieces that are diagonally adjacent are not connected.
    5. Group may be expanded by placing additional pieces on adjacent intersections, and can be connected together by placing a piece on an intersection that is adjacent to two or more groups of the same piece.
    6. When a group is surrounded by opposing pieces, it is captured and removed from the board.
    7. Player who has more groups on the board would be a winner.
