Honey Buzz: Fall Flavors. Sweetwater Grove is all a buzz, with honey on the lips and minds of all the woodland creatures. Thanks to the hard work of accountants like you, the Queen’s honey stand is up and running. But now fall has arrived, and winter is coming! Her Majesty has given Her workers new responsibilities: harvest and sell fruit from the fall crop, decorate the hive with colorful autumn leaves, cap and store nectar for winter, and send retiring workers to be honored at the harvest festival before the sun sets on Sweetwater Grove. So strike up the waggle dance, it’s time for business!
Fall Flavors is an expansion that introduces five new modules for Honey Buzz. You can mix and match to add these modules to the game in any combination!
Fall Fruit Module – Forage in a new field of flowers and collect fruit instead of pollen. Sell your collected apples, pears, and pumpkins at the market or save them up to complete special new orders for honey-dipped fruit.
Autumn Leaves Module – Collect colorful leaves found on the new leafy hive tiles as a means of decorating your hive for the queen. Score points for the leaves in your hive, based on the foliage card in play for that game.
Nectar Caps Module – Put caps on your nectar cells to prepare for winter. Nectar caps are worth lots of points and might even earn you a trophy, but they slow down your economy because capped nectar tiles cannot produce honey!
Harvest Festival Module – Trim your labor force by retiring your workers and sending them off to the harvest festival. As each worker retires, you choose whether they propose a toast or work one last time.
Sweetwater Sunset – When playing with Fall Flavors, use the new sunset board to track progress towards the end of the game. When the sun sets on Sweetwater Grove, winter has arrived, and the game will end.
