NETCONG, N.J., Feb. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Breaking Games, an award-winning game publisher and manufacturer, will showcase more than a dozen new, genre-bending tabletop games, as well as their best-selling titles at this year’s Toy Fair, February 16-19, 2019. Breaking Games had a blockbuster year, as their games continue gaining shelf space with national retailers, including: Target, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Barnes and Noble, Cracker Barrel, Amazon, Kroger and many more. Breaking Games has so much to share, they’ll be featuring games in two separate booths: 1169 and 6909.
