Habalicious!

As of this week, I've entered into an "arrangement" with the folks at Haba USA to review their games in exchange for getting access to those games. Those reviews will be appearing here on the blog, over at BoardGameGeek and possibly in other places.

It's important to note a couple of things for those who are worried that I sold out to "The Man" (or, in Haba's case, a really nifty wooden dwarf piece):
  • the Kid Games 100 was picked long before I had this arrangement in place. (There have already been 9 of their games in the countdown... and there are, I assure you, more to come!)
  • even before they sent me a very nice package filled with games, the boys & I owned 35+ games published by Haba (and I have one oldie but goodie on the way from a BGG trade)... the +, btw, is because there are 2 games sitting in the closet waiting for the boys for Christmas

As always, questions & comments are welcome - I'll do my best to answer 'em.

Hi! Thanks for all of your reviews! I have enjoyed reading them & bought some games because of them (most recently, Kangaroo version of Monster Fressen).

I submitted the Haba game Casino Hot Dog to BGG - it looks like a new game. Did you get it in your review pack from Haba? I don't have it myself so the entry will be pictureless. I feel like I have enough kids games for now...but the name of Casino Hot Dog is very intriguing! I will "see" you at BGG! Rebecca

Again, thanks for sharing your

No problem with the Haba connection. Keep the chart moving tho' it appears to be stuck!
