A perfectly balanced piece that blends in seamlessly with the base game, and increases the level of depth exponentially.

Once you've incorporated the Mosquito, it's impossible/pointless to play without it

This little bugger really does open up some new options when playing Hive. It's quite fun and a lot easier to keep some plans in the dark, given that the Mosquito's role could be one of many choices.

I'm not sure I will always play with it when playing Hive, e.g. in learning games, but I'm very happy to have added it to the game.

A new challange for my favorite abstract of all time. It's not a 10 by itself, but it improves a 10, so it gets the same rating.

O Mosquito, como pica os demais, pode copiar as habilidades de todas as vitimas que tenha por perto, por isso, traz consigo uma revolução para o jogo "A Colmeia" que é dificil de traduzir em palavras. Talvez a melhor descrição seja mesmo essa, revolução, pois o jogo torna-se mais fácil, mais rápido e muito mais ofensivo do que defensivo. Mais umas pecinhas não fariam mal nenhum...

I've been on this site for 10 years now, and I'm far from sick of games, but I think I am, to some degree, sick of learning too many new games. I'm also tired of playing 4+ hr multiplayer games, but I'll still happily play really long games 2 player.

This is a non-essential, but very addition to my hive set. The mosquito is a clever piece that adds an extra dimension to the game.

Well worth while addition that adds an extra twist to an already great game. Watch out for the mosquito suddenly leaping up on the hive as a beetle or leaping out of a congested area as a grasshoper.

This clever addition to Hive accomplishes what every game expansion should strive to accomplish. It wisely and successfully straddles the fence between being an expansion that is functional yet adds little to a game, and being an expansion that is exciting yet disrupts and distorts a game. Hive is so evenly, beautifully balanced that an expansion could have easily thrown off the scales. But the Mosquito doesn't do that. It adds just the perfect amount of power and intrigue, without altering the game we all love.

Fun addition to Hive. Adds a new strategic element. Sometimes the Mosquito becomes the difference between winning and losing, and sometimes you don't ever use it. But just the option adds more depth to a great game.

A great addition to HIVE & I hope there is more to come. I can think of a dozen more insects to translate into this game--Dragonflys anyone? Scorpions? How about a Firefly (a piece which removes/captures other pieces)?

Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving. Pratchett

A simple piece, which adds more to the long game than the short game. In the short game, it essentially becomes a fourth Ant, but in the longer games, the choices involved with this piece really shine; this is where it gains personality. Recommended, but not needed.
