Review: Bee Farming

You really need to keep your wits about you to manage your bee farm!

View on the App Store: Bee Farming for iPad - Five Deer Ltd

Features of Bee Farming:

  • Teaches entrepreneurship & how to run a business
  • Teaches care and management of your bees
  • Strategic thinking
  • Conceptualise real world cause & effect
  • Learn creative thinking to get your hive to flourish

Manage your bee farm.  Look after your bees and ensure you have enough bees to collect honey from the flowers. 

Both our boys aged 4 and almost 7 enjoy playing this game. The older boy (7) really works on making money and enjoys managing the whole scenario!

Once the nectar is collected the bees return to the hive, depending how much honey each bee can carry, and you have the option to sell all your honey or part of your honey supplies on the Bee Index...which is quite fun!   Once you have amounted some funds you can get more bees for your hive.  Buy more bees and you get the capacity to hold more nectar, enlarge your honey pots and bee hives to increase your potential revenue.

The game lasts for '10 DIGITAL weeks', approximately 20-30 minutes to play the full rounds.

Each week you have the choice of which forest you visit, each costs a different amount of play money. The more expensive forests have better honey gathering opportunities but you may encounter hornets and other nasties who will try to eat your bees (aaarrrrgghhh). It is advisable to have a few guardian bees before you go into these forests as losing all your bees is quite disturbing! 

A good game to teach children all the different aspects of running a business in a fun and challenging way!

Our RATING:

10 out of 10!

Age Group:

6-Adult

Ensure your child does not go into the forests with 'attack' hornets who assault your bees as it rather disturbing if you are unprepared (i.e. Have no guardian bees.) This can make little kids a bit upset to find their bees under attack.
This is NOT a self starting game. It requires instruction, reading, detailed explanation and sitting with your child for the first few times they play it!
