App description: Things had been pretty quiet around the hive as winter drew in - until a quick check of the stores showed that there was nothing left to eat!
Yes, the worker bees had been too busy playing with their iPhones to collect any pollen, and nobody is going to deliver a pizza to a beehive.

Luckily, you're a spelling bee - and you can keep the hive alive by using your quick wits and word skills. Write words across the comb to fill the cells up with pollen - but you're going to have to be strategic about it. Will you concentrate on keeping a small group buzzy and well fed, or are you going to stretch out - and put everyone on a diet? One thing's for sure - if the queen goes hungry, you'll be out of a job!

--

Buzz Words is a word making puzzle game with a mechanic best described as "use it or lose it" - every turn, the hungry bees living in your hive are going to chomp a bit further through their stock, and the only way to stop them going hungry is to use their cell in a word (sending them off the board and to warmer weather) or using a cell next to it (giving them a little boost). Because bees are social creatures, cells with an overabundance of food can share it around.

It's your choice whether to play tight or wide, but make sure you keep that center tile alive!
