Product Description

Product Description

Follow the clues to crack the case! This game gets two teams racing to solve a mystery. The solution may only be revealed by the adorably detective-like Giant Mystery Decoder, which also keeps score. Want to try one? Here's the case Jake is being chased by a buffalo stampede when he comes to a wide, deep river. To escape, he must cross the river, but there is no bridge and he has no boat. He cannot even swim. Nonetheless, he easily gets away and, although the river is full, he doesn't even get wet. Why is Jake able to cross the river, and why don't the buffalo follow? If you don't know the answer, the clues will get you closer... How many will you need? 1) Jake uses no equipment or tools to cross. 2) The buffalo weigh over 1,000 pounds each, but Jake weighs only 100 pounds. 3) It's wintertime. Yes, the river is frozen! For 2 teams (but instructions for a 2-player game are also included).

From the Manufacturer

Just for kids who like to unravel riddles and break down brainteasers, this game gets two teams racing to solve a mystery. Each mystery is an excercise in critical thinking. Only the Giant Mystery Decoder can tell you if you've cracked the case. Have fun while you build those Sherlock skills!

We love this game! It is full of short mysteries that keep kids attention. The mysteries are very cute and get the kids thinking creatively. To find out the answer, they use a magnifying glass with a red film in it. The film decodes the answer so they can read it. The only problem we have is that some of the mysteries are too hard for our younger child, so sometimes we give her extra hints. Our kids love playing it! We think you should try it!!

What a great game. NOTE: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO SOLVE IT IN 30 SECONDS. I really do not like the title. I think some people might get disincourage from buying it thinking they have to be extremely smart to solve the case. The truth is our family takes about I think it is a little minutes or so in solving the case or giving up. It is difficult for teens to play alone so Adults play too. Our family loves playing it at parties and get togethers. It makes you think in a fun way. Someone gets to read a short paragraph senerio filled with clues. You figure it out together as a group or can keep asking for up to 3 clues. For each extra clue a point is removed out of 5 possible points. I highly recommend it.

In looking at this game, it seemed like it would appeal more to my younger kids (mine range from 9-20), but once the 2 little ones started to play, soon we all started trying to chime in with our guesses for the answers. It's somewhat like the game 20 Questions but with the special magnifying glass twist to read the answer. Not really a game you would play over and over with the same people as you would eventually know the answers to the cards, but a great game to pass along when you're done with it. Encourages you to really think about the answer options.
