Hive is a small abstract game in which two players try to surround the rival's queen using a roster of invertebrates, each with a different special power. Components are absolutely fabulous. Thick and big bakelite hexagons. That said, I did not like the game very much. It may be me. It looks like I do not enjoy abstract games.
This is a fast and intense pure strategy game; all of the information is out there, all of the possibilities are known. If you can get the initiative, everything could fall into place... but if you aren't careful, you'll end up one move behind and unable to keep your queen protected. Like chess, but more portable, faster, and more fun.
