Moose Enterprise Secures Australian Distribution Rights for Hedbanz

Moose Enterprise has secured the Australian distribution rights for the children’s game Hedbanz. From Trends International, the game has sold millions of units worldwide and is the newest edition to Moose’s cache of games.

Based on a classic play pattern, Hedbanz is the goofy quick-question game of “What Am I?” Players wear a picture card in their headband and then quickly ask questions to figure out what they are. When they figure it out, they get rid of a chip. The first player to get rid of all three of their chips wins. The game is intended for two to six players.
