Description Edit | History

Insecta is a game of bug-to-bug conflict and combat. Players design a mutant bug team and with them attempt to escape from "The Hive," filled with real-world arthropods and controlled by an adversarial "Hivemaster" player (somewhat akin to a dungeonmaster). The game comes with 16 mutant bug displays (6 are "starting" displays, the others are swapped in as the bugs mutate), design cards, mapsheets, minature bugs and counters.

A limited reissue of the game, The Mutant Kit, was published in 2000 without rubber bugs or Hive cards, creating a modular game system that could be combined with other expansions.
