color_dwarfsThe Color Dwarfs from Haba just won “Best Board Game” at the Middle East Toy Fair.

Aimed at the same age group as Candyland, it looks like a better game. Each card has two or more colors in a picture, and you have to say one of the colors to move to that square (which means you get a choice). You win the game by collecting gifts from the various houses.

The game comes with various rules for making it harder or easier, as well as cooperative play.

And it’s not about candy; it’s about dwarfs.
