Pegasus Spiele will release Havalandi, a new Reiner Knizia game by Edition Spielwiese, into U.S. retail by January 2024.

In this abstract strategy game, players are attempting to launch a fleet of hot air balloons into the sky to draw the attention of onlookers on the ground. They score points based on the placement of the balloons and formation of the largest groups of balloons on the tile board. Some of the launch sites in regions of the board are prized to players because they allow them to earn even more points. The player who ends the game with the most points wins.

The game is for two to four players, ages 8 and up, and plays in 45 to 60 minutes. It will retail for $39.95.

Pegasus Spiele has also placed MicroMacro: Crime City - Showdown, a standalone board game, onto preorder (see "Final Chapter of 'MicroMacro: Crime City'").
