HABA USA is pleased to announce it is hosting a game design contest. The contest will run from 6/6/17 to 7/31/17. We know this isn't a lot of time, and don't expect fully finished games. If we want to publish any idea, we will work with the designer(s) to develop a product everyone is happy with. If there is enough interest in the contest we may extend the timeline. We hope this will become an annual event.

This contest is a little different than most. Participants will be sent a Game Design Kit. This will include random items from previous HABA Games. You can use some or all of these items to make a game with. You may include other items, cards, boards, dice, etc.

Full information can be found here:http://www.habausa.com/game-design-contest-kit.html

It should be fixed for most. I does look like sometimes it will not get added to your cart. We are working to fix that problem. Refreshing the page several time seem to work. It should be fixed for everyone by tomorrow. If it is still not we will take kit requests through PayPal.

Sorry of the inconvenience.

FYI - The same behavior is exhibited when clicking the 'Add to Wishlist' link. That is, the wishlist page is opened and shows as empty (at least for me, as there are no other items to display.)

I tried that when I first found myself unable to add to cart. It did not help.

Also a no go here. I called the website customer service and left a message. Can't be added to wishlist either. Also I noticed that the first time you click on the 'add to cart' button, nothing ever happens. After you click the second time, you receive the message that nothing was added to cart.

Also it still shows 'In stock'.



Website issues aside, this is a very cool contest. I hope we all get a shot.

I am interested but I am assuming 'family weight' does not include games designed for small children in the more 3-5 age range (parents can play as well).

Also, shopping card also doesn't work for me either.

I was able to add and checkout with the game design kit (I did order a game for my son too, not sure if that made any difference). It looks like everything went through on my email receipt. I checked out as a guest. Hope that helps others who are interested in this design contest!

Ordered! I'm going to turn one of my Friday night game nights into "Friday night game design brainstorm" night. Maybe I'll finally have something to do w/all my Pandemic Legacy pieces.

FYI, you reversed the 2 links, relative to their descriptions. Corrected:

@Haba USA, please let the EU company headquarter know that we would love to see this happen in the EU, too. Thanks!
