Honey Buzz has an amazing theme, unique components, and skill-building opportunities for days! This game combines a handful of well-known game mechanisms such as worker placement, tile placement, and order fulfillment to create a cohesive and well balanced game. Sure, Honey Buzz probably isn’t the best fit for a K-12 classroom, but it thrives in a homeschool setting and at family game night where time constraints are less of an issue.

Game Overview

Honey Buzz is a worker bee placement game where players expand a personal beehive by drafting various honeycomb tiles that grant actions that trigger 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 and builds their hive. After all, in the honey business, efficiency is queen.
