HABA announces three new games to be released at Essen SPIEL 2019 with the intention of a simultaneous release in the US.

Dragon’s Breath: The Hatching, designed by Lena Burkhardt (Dragon’s Breath) and Günter Burkhardt (Ulm, Seeland) is a stand-alone game in the Dragon’s Breath universe, featuring Dragon Mom and a new egg about to hatch! Dragon Mom melts the ice column, releasing more sparkling gemstones that players collect to complete amulet cards, all while trying not to let the egg fall. Elements from this game can be combined with the original Dragon’s Breath to increase the player count to 5.

Dragon’s Breath: The Hatching plays 2-4 players, ages 6+, in about 20 minutes.

Cloaked Cats, designed by Connor Reid (5-Minute Dungeon) is a deduction game where players are cats at a Masked Ball. Players try to figure out whom is whom, while keeping their own true identity secret. Players try to unmask the other players among all the velvet-pawed guests before they are unmasked.

Cloaked Cats plays 2-4 players, ages 7+, in about 20 minutes.

Miyabi, designed by Michael Kiesling (Azul, Tikal, Heaven & Ale),is a tile laying game to design a Japanese garden.  Players skillfully placing stones, bushes, trees, ponds and pagodas on multiple levels in their gardens to score points become the best garden designer of the season. Miyabi comes with five expansions included in the game.

Miyabi plays 2-4 players, ages 8+, in about 45 minutes.
