Swarm Call is a new tabletop game, in which the players are beekeepers, managing hives, weather, and seasonal events in a misty valley.

Players can play wide or tall, manipulating their physical hives as they anticipate the weather, manage hive strength, and collect resources to protect bees.

After playing through the seasons (spring, summer, and fall), juggling collaboration, competition, and doing their best to watch the forecasts, the player with the most honey stored up when winter arrives is the winner.

Each game is different enough to keep play styles dynamic, but similar enough that techniques can be refined with future plays.
