Description Edit | History

Microgame #2 in the Metagaming Microgames series.

From the rulebook...

"On a far planet, summer is ending. It is the time of harvest. And across the fields pour the Hymenoptera - intelligent insects with only one goal...more food for the hive.

Chitin I is a tactical abstract from Metagaming's Hymenoptera game system. It simulates a battle between two hive cities struggling for greater shares of food - the harvest, or bodies of the enemy! Workers, fliers, basics, and the different types of warriors they command make Chitin I a detailed yet easy to learn game in a setting that may really exist...somewhere...

Science Fiction fans and gamers alike will enjoy Chitin I."
