I purchased this game for my nearly 5 and 7 yr.old daughters for Christmas. I think it has a lot of potential to be a really fun and educational game, but as it currrently is packaged, the beginner version cannot be played correctly. The game comes with 101 letter tiles (cardboard not wooden as the amazon description states). We received all 101 letter tiles, however we still do not have the right number/combination of letters to complete the words on the begginer side of the game board. Clearly, there is no fun in playing a game only to realize that you can't even finish it. Don't know who tested this product, but I can't believe it passed even one trial round. It was clear very quickly that there weren't enough of the right letters. I have called and emailed Fundex asking for extra tiles or a full refund. I gave them a list of exactly how many tiles of each letter are needed to actually be able to play they game they make and sell. Seems like someone in their company should have figured that out long before it hit the shelves. I hope their customer service dept. will come through and send us the extra letters.
