This game was purchased for my 6 year old daughter about a year ago. While it was a little advanced for her at that time, she has developed an interest in Ancient Egypt since and we pulled out the game. Last night we sat in a circle (daughter, me and her dad) and played this trivia game. We haven't found many trivia games that are fun for both adults and kids, but this one fits the bill. There are two sections of questions (hard and easy -- 3 in each section) and the object of the game is to get the highest number of cards -- if you answer a question correctly, you keep the card. A roll of the dice tells you which question to ask. We had a ball, and we are looking forward to trying some of the other Professor Noggin games. I really like that it not only gave my daughter information about the time she was interested in (Ancient Egypt) but also introduced her to Rome, Greece, Mesopotamia, China and Japan. The only thing that stops this game from getting a 5 star rating from me is that the questions get memorized pretty quickly, and at that point the game is not really interesting any more. When we have memorized all of the questions, I am going to donate the game to my daughter's elementary school.

It is an easy way to review or learn about Ancient Civilizations. The game is a deck of cards and one dice. There is nothing to set up just take the cards out of the box and your done. If we don't have alot of time, I pick a small number like 6 and say who ever gets six cards first win. If you are going on a trip, these games are small and easy to play anywhere. The other great thing about this game is if you do lose a card the game is not ruined. You could even play it in a car.

This isn't a game you'd whip out for the sheer fun of it on family night, but my family agrees that it sure is a better way to introduce kids to ancient civilizations that the many mind-numbing texts for children out there. If yours is like ours, they'll know very little the first time you play, but by the third time, they'll sound oh-so-smart knowing Euclid is the father of geometry and that Roman slaves could earn their freedom.

This isn't deep understanding, but it's a fairly painless and oft times rather enjoyable way to learn some facts that further instruction can build upon later on down the educational road. That said, if your child hasn't internalized the necessity of learning anything about ancient civilizations, this game isn't fun enough to overcome that. This game works only with kids who are not kicking and screaming, but rather realize the alternative introduction to these things would be far less interactive and far more dull.

For the first game or two, my advice for starting with kids who don't yet have a burning curiosity about ancient civilizations is to begin playing with only half the deck. That way, you'll work around again to the cards you've already "lost" on (which go to the bottom of the pile), which will build confidence (and fun) when your child answers them correctly on the second or third pass.

This game is a pretty good review of ancient civilizations. It would be very good for students even those who may be older. It could serve as a refresher if you need one. For kids 7-13 it is ideal. I plan on using it in my classroom for a good review toward the end of the year once we have went over several of the ancient civ. empires. I would recommend unless you already have a lot of ancient history knowledge.

We love the Professor Noggin card games. Older kids/adults can play using the harder questions, and younger kids can use the easy questions, so kids have a chance to beat the adults. It is a fun way to reinforce what we've learned in school...or it gives us information about a topic we didn't cover. We've brought this game on trips, and played with extended family and with friends, and it's always a big hit with everyone!

I had waited a long time to buy these, not sure that my boys would enjoy these cards. All three, ages 13, 10 and 6, enjoy asking each other the trivia questions It was worth the money - watching their enjoyment while increasing their knowledge makes this product worth the price. And its a huge bonus that they are unplugged.
