Winter is coming! Queen Zizi must save her hive from the Drones, who are laying around gorging on a limited supply of honey. If Queen Zizi and her children are going to survive until the Spring, the Drones must go! She calls on her Workers to, “Toss. Them. OUT!” But the Drones are comfortable and content and won’t leave without a fight! Let the battle begin…
1ST – Place Queen Zizi at the center of your play space. We recommend a large table.
2ND – Choose your side. Hivernation comes with 40 double sided bee tiles. Each player chooses 20 and turns either Drones or Workers face up.
3RD – Each player also gets 3 random specialty tiles from the facedown stack. Will you get a bear, a flower, a pesticide tile or perhaps a beekeeper?
4TH – Players take turns building a hive around Queen Zizi. Hivernation is organic so build it however you like!
5TH – Eventually, one player has to make a move to attack! But be aware! When you move to attack, your opponent will get the same chance to attack back! Now IT’S ON!
6TH – Or shake things up! Use one of you specialty tiles to protect your tiles, flip your opponents tiles or remove them from the game! Increase your bees and block your opponent!
Hivernation provides solid, head-to-head interaction! Bring your strategy ‘A’ game when challenging friends and frenemies alike and walk away from the table with a smile…and a new friend.
There are no breaks in a game of Hivernation. Even when you’re not actively playing a tile you’ll be calculating your opponents next move and your counter to it!
The RamSTARS have worked hard to strip Hivernation down to its essence! The mechanics are clean, universal and easy to learn. Spend time playing, not reading the rule book.
Did we mention you should spend time playing? Hivernation comes organized with an insert that allows for a 30 second set up time. Get playing right away. Easy!
