HABA contest entry

Here’s an overview of the game I’m working on for my HABA contest entry. My goal was to make something simple that young children could easily understand but that kept adults interested as well. I also wanted to stick to using the existing pieces with as little additional components as possible. Here’s an overview of the internal pieces I used and what I added:

  • 6 witch meeples (3 green, 2 yellow, 1 red)
  • 4 orange cat meeples
  • 10 red frog meeples
  • 4 sets of 6 dice — one set for each player

The objective of the game is to lure witches (or the cats which are just witches in disguise) to your perfect root beer brews, using magic to help things out along the way. Here’s a list of game features:

  • Simultaneous turns — no waiting
  • Dice rolling with no paperwork
  • 100% language-free components so all you need is rules in each language
  • Fast 20 minute game play

Next post is my first pass at the rules!
