About

The yellowing leaves are starting to fall on the forest floor. Autumn is upon us. This must be the time!! For honey!!! Hungry bears are using all the tricks up their sleeves to get their paws on their favourite food before they are confined to the winter slumber. However, the challenge is on! Not only do they face a formidable enemy - the belligerent bees who will defend their hard-earned reserve at whatever cost, they are also competing against each other as the honey is dwindling fast and no more..... So what is gonna happen?

In this game, players take on the role of grizzly bears who are trying to collect their beloved honey. Yet, they can never get their precious without taking some risks. Not only are there furious wasps and bees ready for revenge but also their bear buddies may be casting a covetous eye and trying to snatch each others’ honey with their bear hands (no pun intended). There are different types of function cards in the game which allow the players to do different things such as finding out what is hidden in the beehives or taking another player’s tile. Players can use their memory and deception skills to make full use of the different functions and turn it into a mind game, in which the winner will have outdone the others by tricking their opponents and earning the most honey. At the end of game, players score points for each honey tile that they own. The honey bee and wasps cause no instant harm to the players during the game, however if the players still have them in their baskets when the game ends, they will be penalized. The player with the highest score wins the game.

  • 5 Reference Cards
  • 36 Beehive Tiles (Honey pot, honey bees and wasps)

 Let's have a look what Dan King, the previewer of The Dice Tower says.

Below is the link of preview by Tyler from Board Game Quest.

http://www.boardgamequest.com/hunny-hunters-preview/

 " I ended up enjoying Hunny Hunters more than I anticipated. The game is very light, but that doesn’t mean the game is uninteresting. The game moves very quickly with little downtime. As a player, you never feel that you are out of the competition for honey and there is always something for you to do on your turn. The enjoyable bluffing aspect to Hunny Hunters is by far its best selling point. The function cards give you the opportunity to outthink your opponents and claim victory. If you are looking for a light bluffing game to add to your collection, consider giving Hunny Hunters your support."

I love playing poker games. Isn't it great to trick and outdone your opponents? It is exactly how I feel in playing Hunny Hunters. The cards' functions are carefully designed so that there are always options on your turn. Use them wisely or play a "combo" of cards to set up traps for your dear buddies! I try not to reveal all the tricks i used but I found it interesting to develop new "combos". A two player game is one thing but more than 2 is another thing. I personally enjoy more in 3-5 player games because the interactions between any two players may also influence others that makes the game even more interesting and brings a lot of uncertainty.

Risks and challenges

Instead of taking Hunny Hunters to one of the existing publishers, I made an important decision to try to self-publish it and this is the first time I am publishing a game. I spent a couple of months time to learn the whole process such as hiring artists, playtesting, obtaining quotations, designing packaging and fulfillment etc therefore I am pretty confident that I can handle this. I will keep you guys updated so backers will know exactly the progress.
I genuinely want to bring this game to live, so please support us to make it happen. Thank you!
