Worker Bee Placement Game Honey Buzz Passes 300% Kickstarter Funding

Bees have discovered money and the players will look to lead the most productive and profitable hive

Honey Buzz (Elf Creek Games)A smart looking worker placement game is currently up for Kickstarter crowdfunding for Elf Creek Games. In Honey Buzz, players will lead their hive as each attempts to be the most productive and profitable. The game is for one to four players, ages 10+, and plays in 45-90 minutes. Honey Buzz just passed the 300% funded mark with just over two weeks to go. You can secure the standard edition for a $39.00 pledge or score the deluxe edition with upgraded components for a $59.00 pledge through November 27th. Expected delivery is July of next year.

About the project:

The bees have discovered economics. The queens believe that if they sell honey to the bears, badgers, and woodland creatures, they will find peace and prosperity. Spring has arrived and it’s time to build the hive, find nectar, make honey, and, for the first time ever, set up shop.

Honey Buzz is a worker bee placement game where players expand a personal beehive by drafting various honeycomb tiles that grant actions that are triggered throughout the game. Each tile represents a different action. Whenever a tile is laid so that it completes a certain pattern, a ring of actions is triggered in whatever order the player chooses. A tile drafted on turn one could be triggered up to three times at any point during the game. It all depends on how the player places their beeples (bee+meeple) and builds their hive. After all, in the honey business, efficiency is queen.

As you continually expand your hive, you’ll forage for nectar and pollen, make honey, sell different varieties at the bear market, host honey tastings, and attend to the queen and her court. There’s only so much nectar to go around, and finding it won’t be easy. Players will have to scout out the nectar field and pay attention to other players searches to try to deduce the location of the nectar they need for themselves.
