WAGGLE DANCE KICKSTARTER LAUNCH PRESS RELEASE!

Grublin Games introduces their new game: Waggle Dance: Just launched on Kickstarter and already funding strong!

Following from the 2013 overfunding success of Cornish Smuggler, Grublin Games is proud to announce their next Kickstarter: Waggle Dance.

ABOUT THE GAME

Build a beehive, manage your worker bees, to build a better hive, collect pollen and fill your hive with honey – be efficient and strategic to outmanoeuvre your opponents!

Waggle Dance is a euro-style worker-placement dice game for 2-4 players, designed by Mike Nudd & published by Grublin Games Publishing.

WE WANTED TO DESIGN A GAME THAT HAD PURE GAMEPLAY AT ITS CORE, IS BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED, PORTABLE (WE’RE STILL WORKING ON THE BOX SIZE, BUT IT’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE PRETTY CLOSE TO THE RFTG SIZE) WITH A TRULY IMPRESSIVE COMPONENT COUNT, AND ALL FOR A VERY COMPETITIVE PRICE. Henry Jasper – CEO Grublin Games

Waggle Dance has been designed to be accessible by all, but without sacrificing any strategic depth. The entire game is language independent and with a brief concise rulesheet.

BASICALLY, WE WANTED TO MAKE THE PERFECT GATEWAY GAME Henry Jasper

Mike Nudd is an experienced game designer, already having one successfully published boardgame under his belt: (White Wolf’s Vampire: Prince of the City) and has been actively designing games for the last fifteen years.

THE THEME OF USING BEES AND HONEY REALLY APPEALED TO ME. I HAVE LONG HELD A DEEP RESPECT FOR THE CREATURES TO THE EXTENT THAT I WILL TRY TO SAVE EXHAUSTED BUMBLEBEES I FIND ON THE PAVEMENT BY FEEDING THEM SUGAR AND WATER. I APPRECIATE THAT THEIR ROLE IN NATURAL CYCLE OF THINGS IS IMPORTANT AND I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE CONSEQUENCES OF BEES AROUND THE WORLD GOING EXTINCT. IF I CAN IN SOME SMALL WAY GENERATE ENTHUSIASM FOR BEES AND DRAW ATTENTION TO THESE ISSUES THEN SO MUCH THE BETTER.. Mike Nudd – Creator of Waggle Dance
