Worker Bee Kit
Introducing a new storage solution for your Hive game. This box holds all current standard sized tiles for Hive (Hive tiles not included). This is available as a self assembly kit that would require some basic assembly, glue, and finishing if you really want to get a beautiful look from it. A felt interior can be added (included) so your game pieces slide in smooth and quiet. The angled tile guide walls assure the tiles seat upright when placed in each row. The Hive logo consists of 10 hand painted sections of black and a golden-yellow color matched to the official Hive logo. This is one of my favorite designs I’ve done so far and I think any Hive enthusiast will enjoy the look and feel of this in their game collection.
The Worker Bee Kit is available for $36 shipped. This Kit can be added on to an existing pledge for $31.
I would recommend a light application of Natural Danish Oil. This gives the box a wonderful honey finish which I feel is very fitting with the theme of the game. A light Polyurethane coat will assure this box will stand the test of time.
Here’s a sample section of a Hive kit I’ve finished (Danish oil and a Polyurethane coat) on an early prototype so you can see what kind of finish you can create with this kit:

Queen Bee Limited Edition
I will also offer a limited release of fully finished Hive storage boxes (Queen Bee Pledge Level). Each one I will personally assemble, paint, stain and seal to be ready for your addition of Hive game components. I will include your choice of a red or yellow interior liner. Each box takes about a week to cut, paint, stain, dry, seal, sand and cure, so the time investment limits how many I can reasonably produce.
The Queen Bee is available for $58. It will not be available has an add-on due to its limited production quantity.
Anyone not familiar with Hive, I implore you to pick up a copy and play it with a friend. Check it out here: http://gen42.com/hive
