Here is a little sampling of where the ants are actually marching. A key part of March of the ants is exploration and control of new territory. When you explore you flip over a face down hex tile and place it anywhere on the board that you like. Hex tiles have a number of collection sites – square boxes – with icons next to them indicating the resource that will be collected. Hexes can also have centipendes, wormholes, or contain strange and powerful forces that will affect the surrounding hexes. These are just a sampling of the colors and textures that are found underground in the world of the ants.
