I started creating my game pieces with some notion of beehives/bees. It most definitely evolved from there. These are my final pieces that ended up creating. I think they turned out pretty well in tune with my original designs. And they are definitely still vaguely beehive-like. Below are my original sketches for my pieces.   I don’t have a fully blown out concept for my game, but I did come up with a board concept, as pictured above. My thinking was sort of along the lines of a multi-level chess board, but with missing spaces in the board, the blacked out spaces on the levels, and some kind of end point on each level, which is what the circular and square holes are on each level.
