HABA Orchard Mini Game

Hi Neighbors!

Here is another GREAT game from HABA to take on the road with you! This is the HABA Mini-Orchard Game. It conveniently comes in a storage tin to carry the game wherever you may go. I found this perfect for hotel rooms, dining out and when visiting friends. This is one of the cooperative games, where all the players are working together to defeat the raven. I really like these kind of games as they teach children to work as a team.

The tin holds all the pieces for the game.
This includes:
1 Game Board that is in four parts that connects together like a puzzle.
10 Apples
10 Pears
10 pairs of Cherries
10 Plums
1 Raven Jigsaw (9 pieces)
1 color die w/symbols
1 set of game instructions
(Keep the fruit pieces away from small children as they are tiny and could easily be swallowed.)

The goal in this game is for the children to pick the fruit from the trees before the raven can steal them.

Assemble the game board on a table or flat surface. Place the fruit in the proper trees. Pile the nine pieces of the raven jigsaw beside the board game. Decide who will go first. The first player rolls the die. The die has red, yellow, green, and blue. If it lands on a color you choose 1 pice of fruit from that tree. If the basket is up, the player may choose any two pieces of fruit from the trees. Watch out for the raven! If the raven appears you place one piece of the puzzle in the center of the game board where it belongs. Should the children pick all the fruit before the raven puzzle is completed they win! If they put the raven puzzle together before all the fruit is collected they lose and the raven wins.

HABA has several games that are perfect for travel. We already reviewed one earlier in this trip. Be sure to go back and read the review on Hit the Throttle, another fun travel game.
