Honeycomb is a game in which children try to remove pieces from a honeycomb without making the whole honeycomb fall. The hexagon shaped honeycomb is made up of yellow, green, and orange pieces. Each player spins a spinner and then has to remove a piece of the honeycomb that is the same color as the color the spinner landed on. The goal is to pull out the pieces without allowing the honeycomb or a small plastic bee on its top fall. The game is an interesting twist on classics like Jenga. Our testers enjoyed this game and have played with it several times.

The game develops problem solving, but overall has limited educational value. That said, it is fun, and playing a round would make a good "reward" for well-done chores or homework.
