There is a lot to love about this family strategy game, the best is that there are so many ways to play. For your tiniest players, it is a simple domino-style matching game. Each tile has six symbols on it and no two tiles are identical. I give a handful of tiles to one of our 2-year old twins when I need individual time with his sibling. He loves seeing how long of a matching "train" he can make. Being able to discern and match like to like is a great skill for this age group. But, of course, Honeycombs was originally designed for a slightly older crowd, and it easily ratchets-up to challenge even the professional gamesters among you.
Start with Worker Bee, where each player receives 13 tiles and races to finish their honeycomb first while also making the most matches. Worker Bee is fast-paced and perfect for a larger group of up to four players, because you are not hampered by turn-taking. Or play the more traditional option – One Big Honeycomb – where players earn individual points as they build one group honeycomb. Since each tile has 6 symbols, there is a possibility of earning up to 6 points per turn. Or try the more cooperative, non-competitive Honeycomb Puzzle where players work at a leisurely pace to build a honeycomb puzzle, no time limit, no taking turns, everyone works together simultaneously. You’re finished when all the tiles are connected to everyone’s satisfaction. Honeycomb Puzzle also works great as a thinking skills challenge for a solo player.
Whichever way you play, Honeycombs is unique, challenging, and fun. The Honeycombs' 52 hexagonal-printed playing tiles are attractive and come in a sturdy drawstring storage bag that will travel well for take-along fun.
Honeycombs was recommended by over 80% of the players at the 2017 Mensa Mind Games, has won The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award 2017, and also received the Parents’ Choice Foundation's 2017 Silver Honor Award. The Parents' Choice Foundation's PlayAbility Scale rates the Honeycombs Game strong on building critical thinking and observation skills.
Designed for ages 7 to adult, but younger children will be enthralled building matching "trains." For 1 to 8 players, average game time is 15 to 30 minutes.
