Build a beehive, collect pollen and make honey - be efficient, be strategic, outmaneuver your opponents in this euro-style worker-placement dice game for 2-4 players, designed by Mike Nudd & published by Grublin Games Publishing.

In this game you control worker bees to build their hive, produce more bees, collect pollen, return it to the hive and make honey!

Players need to organise their bees to make as much honey as possible to see the hive through the coming winter. The winner is the first player to successfully create 7 or more honey tokens in their hive.

It's up to you how to achieve this... Do you focus on pollen collection, increasing your bee population, expanding your hive, seeking favour with the queen or splitting your resources to accomplish all of these?  Whatever you choose, the natural world is a competitive environment and you can be sure the other players will be looking to maximise their advantage.
