Welcome to Ursa Miner, where it’s time to dig into Mount Honeycomb! Mine deep into the mountain to find delicious honey and add more bears to your team. Keep an eye out for valuable royal jelly along the way—whoever mines the most will be crowned ruler of the mountain! Hurry, though, because time is short, and once the mountain crumbles, it’s time to go home. You’ll need to use your equipment, navigate dangerous honey-slides, and push around other bears to rule Mount Honeycomb!

Ursa Miner takes place in a three-layered mountain of tiles—as you play the game, you’ll reveal more tiles to mine. You’ll also break down the mountain as you play, so watch your step! A randomized board setup means that no two games will play out the same way, and the mountain will crumble differently every time.
Each turn, players will perform two actions with each of their bears. All bears can move to an adjacent hex and work together to mine adjacent tiles. Tiles are worth honey, which are used to buy more bears and play bonus cards, or royal jelly, which are used as victory points. As bears mine deeper in the mountain, the tiles will get more valuable, but also more difficult to mine. Players draw bonus cards into their hand at the end of each turn, which move tiles and bears around the mountain and foil your opponents’ plans. When the deck runs out, the game ends, and the player with the most royal jelly wins!
