Am I a man or am I a muppet? If I'm a muppet then I'm a very manly muppet!

Haba has just published a new version of Barenstark... everything looks the same with the following exceptions:

- meadow spaces are not removed for scoring... instead, players have "honey drop" counters

- there is an extra "symbol" die that can be used with "professional" players. The sides are:
* don't move the bear but do turn him 360 degrees
* move him 1 space w/your right hand
* move him 2 spaces w/your right hand
* move him 1 space w/your left hand
* move him 2 spaces w/your right hand
* don't move the bear

Color me excited - it's neat to have this great game back in print!

Great news! I'll have to see about getting a few copies as gifts. The "professional" rules look like a fun addition.

Are the honey drops put onto the meadow tiles so that players need to skip over these spaces for the rest of the game? Part of the fun is the increasing challenge as more or larger gaps open in the ring of tiles.

Cheers,
Sean

Honey drops are returned to the box... you can download a PDF of the rules from Haba's German site.

Nothing will stop you from doing just what you suggested, though!

BTW, I've asked Haba USA if they plan on bringing copies here - I'll reply back on this thread when I know something.

Thanks for the link. The first thing I noticed when I opened the PDF was that now, with the honey drops used for penalties instead of removing tiles, the game supports 2-6 players instead of just 2-4 players. That's a welcome change. I'll have to see about adding some honey-coloured beads to my copy of Bärenstark.

Any news? I've got some people looking to get copies but the only places I've seen that are carrying it are Spiele Offensive and Amazon.de.

Here's the word from Haba USA... and it's GOOD news!

Great game – in fact we had so much fun with this game in Feb at our toy Fair that we decided to make it in all English packaging (unfortunately most of my retail store owners prefer the all English vs. the international packaging). So we held off on bringing the german version over here until the new all English game was printed. My latest ETA shows that we should have it in stock and be shiping to retailers in September! The new English version is called Strong Stuff and the item number of the game is 3175 (many online retailers will allow for a search by item code).
