Build a beehive, collect pollen and make honey - be efficient, be strategic, outmanoeuvre your opponents in this euro-style worker-placement dice game for 2-4 players, designed by Mike Nudd & published by Grublin Games Publishing. Launched at the biggest board game event on the planet: Spiel-14 in Essen on October 16th 2014!
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.
There is no text in this game, just beautiful, clear illustration.
As a result, Waggle Dance is a highly accessible game with pure gameplay, natural flow, beautiful intelligent design, language independent and with a simple rule-sheet appealing to all levels of gamers.
This game is very easy to pick up and acts as a perfect gateway game. You are going to enjoy this!
