Hive is rapidly becomming my most played game, the reason being its fast to play with no setup time.
I grabbed this after Christmas and its a fantastic game. For your money you get two sets of 13 bakelite peices. These are just lovely chunky smooth pieces that have this great feel to themselves.

Players take turn in placing a piece, with the pieces depicting an insect. Each insect has its own way of moving like chess. But its much easier to play than chess and you are not constrained with a board.
The first couple of games play very quickly as you learn how the game works and what pieces do what. But after that the real fun kicks in and games start taking 15-20 mins as you each start playing more moves.

So far I am loving this game, maybe after a while I may have burned out on it. But its currently living in my bag so I can play a game whenever there is a free table and opponent.

great game - not played it face to face for a while, but you're right, it's a 'carrier'.
