Last Update.

This campaign will be launched again with some significant changes. The shipping cost will be updated to a much lower one, the art of the game has been improved and the rules have been updated for better gameplay, and other extra changes.  

Thanks to all those who sponsored my game and to whom they sent me private messages with questions and comments, all of them have helped me improve the campaign. Forgive the lack of experience, many things were difficult for me to do, but I will continue with my best effort to make HoneyBees a reality.

Greetings to everyone, I'm F.A.R.O. the 9th Hermit, and I want to present you the game I´ve been working on since last summer, which I called: "HoneyBees". I hope you like it.

A game of hexagonal cards with drawings of small bees and honey drops that when are placed on the playing field form the interior of a honeycomb. 

There are 3 different kind of games and 3 levels of difficulty for each one of them. 

Classic HoneyBees: 

If you have played domino before and armed some puzzles, you will find this game easy to understand. You just need to place your cards next to others where a bee and a honey drop matches, the more matches you do, the more points you get.

The Great HoneyComb:
 

Each turn, the players will take a card and place it on the field if able; if no, they will keep the card. The less cards in your hand at the end of the game, the better. There will be chances to score more points and get rid of the cards in your hand. Also, there's no limit for the cards you want to play, so you can make a really really big honeycomb.

The Honey Bear:   

Each player represent a honey bear and take face down cards from the honeycomb. For each honey drop... "yummy!" score points, but be carefull, for each bee... "ouch!"

The game was intended for children, but it turned out to be entertaining for all ages, including teenagers, parents and specially grand parents. Each game teaches and requires different skills and strategies. Children are taught to think ahead of time and after some games they begin to reserve their special cards and think better strategies.   

Skills that are developed by this game:  

- Visual cognition.
- Spatial memory.
- Logical thinking.
- Setting small goals.
- Risk-taking (for honey bear game).

HoneyBees is probably the sixth game that came to my mind, but it is the easiest to elaborate and the one that requires less investment. That's why I decided to release it first.  

The goal established, is what I need to be able to pay the molds that are required for the die cut of the cards, vectorize pending images, pay the fees, fulfill the rewards and impression of the first edition. 

If somehow the goal is overcomed, I will use the resources to improve the art of the game and package; also, design a honeycomb box to keep safe the cards (included free for all my KickStarter sponsors), and latter on, continue with the development of my other games that I have near to conclude.   

I made my part, and I really hope this works, because I have the next games in the line, waiting to exist. With your help that will be possible. If you liked what you see in the HoneyBees project, then it is very likely that the next games will like you even more. 

Note: If you latter on want to buy the game or something else, check my profile, my Facebook link is there, I will answer you as soon as I can.

The principal challenge I'm facing, is that I don't plan to tell my family or friends about these project and keep it secret. I want to know if the things I do can shine for itself.  

So, if you are reading this... I made all the project and everything for you, and I put my heart on it. Yeah, I'm kind of nervous, because I watched all the other projects here, with their great graphics, videos and stuffs, and I feel ansious, I know I'm not capable to do such kind of things right now, I used windows paint for mostly everything and almost lost a hand in the process, so.. sorry for the pixels.  

But the game is finished, and I don't want to wait more time to know the truth. I believe in my game, it is a good game and it's fun, I played with many of my people and it is a great satisfaction when you see the smiles or the concentration faces, makes you feel you are doing something right.

The things that are pending to conclude, it is rule book for kickstarter, and some details of the packaging. The only thing that can delay the project it is the fabrication of the molds needed for the die cut, takes 5 to 6 business days to make them. And well, find a good shipping price of course. I'll make my best effort to accomplish with the due date.  

And lastly, if you liked the game, the project and everything, please feel free to pass the link to anyone who you think can like it to. I'll be very grateful with you, in a way words can not express.  

Thank you.

Saludos a todos, soy F.A.R.O. el noveno ermitaño, y quiero presentarles el juego en el que he estado trabajando desde el verano pasado, al que llamé: "HoneyBees" (Abejas y Miel). Espero les guste.

Un juego de cartas hexagonales con dibujos de pequeñas abejas y gotas de miel que cuando se colocan en el campo de juego van formando el interior de un panal.

Hay 3 tipos diferentes de juegos y 3 niveles de dificultad para cada uno de ellos.  

HoneyBees Clásico:  

Si has jugado dominó y armado rompecabezas, encontrarás este juego fácil de entender. Solo necesitas colocar tus cartas junto a otras donde coincidan una abeja y una gota de miel, mientras más coincidencia hagas, más puntos obtendrás.

El Gran Panal:

Cada turno, los jugadores tomarán una carta y la colocarán en el campo si es posible; si no, conservarán la carta. Cuantas menos cartas haya en tu mano al final del juego, mejor. Habrá oportunidades de sumar más puntos y deshacerse de las cartas en tu mano. Además, no hay límite para las cartas que quieras jugar, por lo que puedes hacer un panal realmente grande.

El Oso Goloso:

Cada jugador representa un oso de miel y toma cartas boca abajo del panal. Por cada gota de miel... "¡rico!" sumar puntos, pero cuidado... por cada abeja ... "¡auch!"

El juego fue pensado para niños, pero resultó ser entretenido para todas las edades, incluyendo adolescentes, papás y especialmente abuelos. Cada juego enseña/requiere diferentes habilidades y estrategias. A los niños se les enseña a pensar con anticipación y después de algunos juegos comienzan a reservar sus cartas especiales y preparan mejores estrategias.  

Habilidades que desarrolla este juego:

- Cognición visual.  

- Memoria espacial.  

- Pensamiento lógico.  

- Establecer metas pequeñas.  

- Toma de riesgos (para el juego del oso goloso).

HoneyBees es probablemente el sexto juego que me llego a la mente, es el más fácil de elaborar y el que requiere menos inversión. Es por eso que decidí lanzarlo primero.  

El objetivo establecido, es lo que necesito para poder pagar los moldes necesarios para el troquelado de las tarjetas, vectorizar las imágenes pendientes, pagar las comisiones, cumplir las recompensas e imprimir la primera edición.  

Si el objetivo es superado, usaré los recursos para mejorar el arte del juego y el empaque; también diseñaré una caja en forma de panal para guardar las tarjetas (incluida gratis para todos mis patrocinadores de KickStarter), y luego, continuaré con el desarrollo de mis otros juegos que tengo por concluir.

Importante: los costos de envío se cobrarán una vez que finalice la campaña. Este es mi primer proyecto presentado en KickStarter (y para el mundo) y no tengo los precios de envío muy claros en este momento; pero encontraré una buena y económica opción antes de que termine la campaña. Además, el juego es muy ligero.

Hice mi parte, y realmente espero que esto funcione, porque tengo los siguientes juegos esperando existir. Con tu ayuda puede ser posible. Si te gustó lo que viste en el proyecto de HoneyBees, entonces es muy probable que los próximos juegos te agraden aún más.

Nota: Si deseas comprar el juego o alguna otra cosa, revisa mi perfil, mi link de Facebook está ahí, te responderé tan pronto como me sea posible.

HoneyBees aunque tiene nombre en inglés, es de origen mexicano (creo que suena un poco mejor así). Si eres de mi país, la versión que recibirás es en español. El juego es divertido la verdad, he pasado buenos ratos jugando con mis sobrinos, amigos y familia. Si tienes niños verás que pueden entretenerse hasta solos armando su panal.

Gracias por haberte tomado el tiempo de leer este proyecto, espero haya sigo de tu agrado. Creo que he hecho lo mejor que he podido para que este juego pueda existir. Si puedes apoyarme para que esto suceda, te estaré muy agradecido (en verdad... muy agradecido). 

Buena vibra y éxito a todos.

F.A.R.O.
