Game night with HABA- fun games for the kids this Christmas

I love HABA toys.  So much so that I  bought almost all exclusively for my kids.  I love wooden toys from Germany and HABA being a German brand, when I saw that they made board games, I had to check it out!   What a great gift to add to your Friday night game collection. Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers or party entertainment, Asmodee Canada makes gifting easy for friends and family of all ages.

From Asmodee Canada, comes the HABA game, Boom Bang Gold $34.99.
Product Description:

  • Gold has been discovered in the sleepy village of Old Town. Infected by the gold rush fever, everyone is grabbing sticks of dynamite and throwing them into the gold mine. Now you need to be fast and have a good eye … otherwise, you’ll go home empty-handed!
  • Things are about to happen quickly because everyone plays at the same time. A round consists of: Blast, Gold search, Play action tiles and Secure gold/prepare the next round.
  • Anyone who comes across a bat, snake, rat or ghost amongst the gold nuggets needs to get to safety quickly. And there are all sorts of other dangers lurking in the Wild West: the tense atmosphere means you might be challenged to a duel.
  • Contents Include: 1 gold mine (box base with 2 inserts), 4 characters with gold chests, 4 sticks of dynamite, 4 shelves, 1 pocket watch (lap timer), 160 tiles: 82x boulders, 35x legal gold nuggets, 35x illegal gold nuggets, 4 special tiles (1x bat, 1x snake, 1x rat, 1x ghost), 4 action tiles (1x pick, 1x dynamite, 1x revolver, 1x sheriff’s star), 1 set of instructions.
  • A fast-paced reaction game not for the faint of heart! Varied gameplay encourages repeated playing for 2-4 players ages 7+. Game Time: About 20 minutes.

From Asmodee Canada, check out King of the Dice, $21.99.   It’s a really nice family game and has been a big hit in our home.  For my twins I’ve found it be a neat way to help teach them colours, numbers & counting.

Product Description:

  • You’re finally a King! All your dreams have been fulfilled. You sit content in your castle and look out over your wonderful kingdom. Green meadows, rolling fields, high mountains and clear rivers stretch as far as your eyes can see… but one thing is missing from your kingdom: citizens! So you announce the merits of the kingdom all over the country – in the rich cities, to the crazy gnomes in their workshops, to the dwarves in their deep mines, and also to the orcs, fairies and the sorcerer‘s apprentices. But the citizens aren‘t easily convinced.
  • You’re finally a king! You’re going to need skill and luck with the dice to entice the best citizens to your kingdom. Watch out for scoundrels and dragons. Otherwise, your thriving kingdom will soon be a wretched wasteland, and you‘ll have to watch as someone else is crowned King of the Dice.
  • Each move consists of 3 steps: (1) Roll the dice (maximum of 3 times), (2) Acquire new citizens (+ possibly establish a new village) or take a penalty card and (3) Fill up the row of cards.
  • If you can fulfill the conditions of one of the face-up citizen cards with your dice result then you may take this card. If your dice results don’t match any citizen cards, you must take a penalty/scoundrel card which comes with minus points.
  • The person with the most victory points wins the game. If there is a tie the player with the least minus points on their cards wins.
  • Contents Include 6 dice, 65 game cards (15 village cards, 10 penalty cards and 40 citizen cards), 1 set of instructions.
