Beehive is a two-player strategy game that requires you to concentrate fully and develop long-range planning skills. The game board consists of 121 hexagons arranged in a sloping 11 x 11 matrix. The name derives from the playing field's resemblance to the geometric precision of a honeycomb. The first player is assigned the left and right borders of the honeycomb, while the second player is assigned the top and bottom edges.
Beehive was written by Steve Michel and published as type-in source code in Compute! Issue 76, September 1986. Versions were provided for the Amiga, Commodore 64, Apple II, IBM, and several Atari systems.
