Create a buzz* at your game night with Uwe Rosenberg's Applejack

Honey bees are essential to the health and development of an apple orchard. The bees carry pollen from blossom to blossom, helping to fertilize the trees so they can grow their delicious fruit. That’s why beehives play such an important role in the game Applejack, designed by Uwe Rosenberg with artwork by Lukas Siegmon and published by The Game Builders.

In Applejack, players are helping to plant apple trees and harvest their fruit. Players will collect apple tree tiles from the harvest board which contains different types of apples, blossoms and bee hives. You will place the tile on your own personal orchard board making sure that any beehives are adjacent. While you want to collect apples of a specific type, beehives are important, because at the end of the game the player who has collected the most amount of honey is the winner.

Applejack plays 1-4 players, ages 8+, with an estimated playtime of 60 minutes. The German edition of Applejack is planned to be available at Essen Spiel 2022.
