Orbital Space Station “Tenk 34” had once been a thriving, bustling and opportunistic “outer-state”, governed by the mighty Terran Federation on the planet of Mars. When civil war had broken out in Tenk 34, those who pledged allegiance to Mars fled the station to neighboring stations, leaving Tenk 34 behind to be closed off and abandoned as a “failed project”.
Tenk 34 now sits alone amongst the stars, rife with gang war, violence, and bloodshed. Resources and territory remain the most important asset sought by the gangs that roam the station, forging a path of death and destruction in their wake.
HIVES is a tabletop skirmish game of rival gangs, presented on a single page. Planned as a zine, each release will also be done on a single page, allowing you to compile a book of sorts, as you continue to collect individual issues of HIVES. Played on battlefields of between 2x2 to 4x4 foot in size, the game is easy to play, tactical in nature and allows players to fully customize it to how they like. HIVES, in essence, is totally "hackable".
Originally planned as an ongoing micro-zine, HIVES is available in a full and complete experience, including a full backstory and setting, the core rules, a section with additional options like new weapons, cybernetics, special abilities, a campaign system, rules for security systems and turrets, hacking, two ways to play the game solitaire and much more. Everything included in this full book were originally slated for individual releases in follow-up zines.
Included in this book, are printable unit cards and tokens.
Upon your digital purchase, your order will be available for download for a total of 14 days from the purchase date.
