Card Games

Spice up family game night with the Hedbanz Board Game, a fun, fast-paced, and simple question game that everyone aged 6 and up can enjoy. In a group of two to six players, players draw an identity card for an animal, food, or common object but with one catch--everyone else will see the card, displayed by the headband on each player's forehead. The goal is for each player to deduce who or what they are by asking the other players questions before the clock runs out.

Once Upon a Time is the award-winning storytelling card game that encourages creativity and collaborative play. One player is the Storyteller, and begins telling a story using the fairytale elements on her Story cards, guiding the plot toward her Ending Card. The other players use their own cards to interrupt her and become the new Storyteller. The winner is the first player to use all her Story Cards and play her Ending Card. The object of the game, though, isn't just to win, but to have fun telling a story together. Launch date: October 2012.
