With no setting up to do, the game begins when the first piece is placed down. As the subsequent pieces are placed this forms a pattern that becomes the playing surface (the pieces themselves become the board). Unlike other such games, the pieces are never eliminated and not all have to be played. The object of the game is to totally surround your opponent`s queen, while at the same time trying to block your opponent from doing likewise to your queen. The player to totally surround his opponent`s queen wins the game.
 
Staff review: Alex
This is a great stocking stuffer for people who enjoy playing strategic board games. It is a two-player game where the object is to use your bug tiles to surround your opponent's queen tile. Whoever surrounds the other queen first, wins! Your bugs all have specific ways they move; some jump, some can move 1 place at a time, and others may move 3 places at once. You can play whichever bugs you want, but you don’t have to use all of them. When a bug enters play, it is not removed until the game ends. This is a fantastic strategy game. Anyone that is a fan of classic card games, backgammon, dominoes, or chess will love this. Usually, a game only takes about 20 minutes. I have played back-to-back games for 2 hours before looking up. The other great thing is it is a very portable game. You just need about a 2 foot by 2 foot flat area to play. We often would take it to a restaurant to play or a waiting room. Don’t wait to pick it up before we are all out!
