1, 2, 3 HEX HERBEI! BOARD GAME OF OBSERVATION
HABA Germany | 5 years & up
It's never easy being a Sorcerer's Apprentice, and in this fast-paced game of close observation, only the quickest and most vigilant will forge ahead!
Players undertake the same task simultaneously in a bid to make it through the Enchanted Forest first. Each round begins with all players shaking their magic ball (filled with tiles) about until they spot a tile that matches any 1 of the 4 silhouettes depicted on the game board piece directly in front of the one that their game figurine is currently standing on. Got it right? That's great, your figurine gets to move one step closer down the path, towards the end of the Enchanted Forest!
Before each new round begins, players exchange their magic ball in a clockwise direction and repeat the above. The fun lies in the fact that there is a different combination of tiles in every magic ball*- so there will be rounds where you may find yourself fruitlessly shaking your magic ball about without being able to spot anything! And the best part is? You never know when that is, which means you have to keep trying every round anyway! (Click here for full game instructions in English [Page 5].)
• Attention to detail
• Observational speed
• Critical thinking
• Patience & focus
• Group/family bonding
An exciting game that leaves no apprentice behind! Find yourself way behind everyone else? Here's a super tip that will keep you in the running: when shaking your magic ball, put your efforts into spotting the white milestone symbol on your game board piece instead - this pushes your figurine alllllll the way to just one spot behind the next player - a definite mega bump that will re-instill hopes of victory in any Apprentice!
*For this reason, the initial distribution of tiles into each magic ball is an extremely important step and the instructions must be followed correctly. Mixing up the tiles will mess up game play - so you really want to prevent that.
