But what I appreciate most is that the games are like small prep courses for entering the larger world of gaming once the children grow up and never leave their parents' basements. One game, The Orchard, is a cooperative game, where the kids play against the game itself and not each other and win or lose together. It's like Pandemic 101. Another highly popular game is Rhino Hero, a game that sees the children laying down card stock walls and roofs and the titular Rhino Hero in a larger version of a card house, seeing how high they can get the tower. It is like an Intro to Dexterity games.
Haba is the Pixar of the gaming world, understanding that the games they make are for children, but that it will be the parents who purchase them and who will be playing the games with the children. I cannot wait to add some of their games to my collection and get the world's next generation of tabletop gamers off to a good start.
