About

Collect nectar. Make honey. Sting the competition.

Hives & Honeycombs is a fast paced tactical game for 2 to 4 players, aged 8+, 30-60 mins playing time.

Build your empire and conquer the bee kingdom! 

Be prepared for tactical decisions, fun images, iconic cards and plenty of 'bee-puns'.

 

Hives & Honeycombs is a rewarding game for 2-4 players, in which players race to develop their colonies, create new hives, and grow their bee populations.

The game is played in turns where you have an array of choices you can make.

How will your choices affect your colony? Increase your number of  Worker Bees, fully equipped to gather nectar and pollen and bring it back to the colony? Or reinforce your hive and convert your nectar into wax using your Builder Bees?

Gather resources, upgrade your hives, expand your colony, and dominate the landscape. But beware. For as your bee population and hives increase in both size and number, so too do the costs to maintain them.

Careful planning and tactical play will be rewarded through bountiful stockpiles of resources, upgraded hives and a flourishing colony.

Careless decisions and poor foresight will be swiftly and mercilessly punished, as your bees starve, your hives deteriorate and your colony runs out of space.

Live or die. Flourish or fail.

It’s time to prove your worth, as Queen of the Bees.

 

 

 

The cards have been designed to have a minimal yet elegant look to them that highlights the key game information to be as user friendly as possible

Risks and challenges

We have playtested endlessly. We have created a beautiful prototype. Everything is ready and in place for bulk printing.

We don't expect any issues. The only challenge we can foresee is a delay if the company who is set to complete our printing becomes insolvent, in which case we would select an alternative provider.

We are confident that we can get these made and shipped to you on time.
