Not that much fun for older kids and adults
on July 5, 2011
I know this game is intended for young children, so many will frown upon this review, BUT there are plenty of games out there that are just as fun for young children as is for adults. The only two children that are halfway interested in playing this game are my 4 and 6 yr olds. Everyone else (8 and up) runs when this one comes off the shelf. It's ALL luck... absolutely no strategy at all. No educational value either other than ordering numbers from 1-6. "Rat a Tat Cat" is an example of a card game (also by Gamewright)that my whole family enjoys playing. It combines luck with strategy, memory, and the educational value of learning how to add 4 numbers together (my 4 yr old has learned how to do this). I highly recommend "Rat a Tat Cat"
If you are looking for an easy, no thinking game, for very young children (6 and under), then "Too Many Monkeys" may be a game you'd be interested in.
*update... Also you should check out "Frog Juice" by Gamewright. This is another game that all my kids (ages 4-21) enjoy playing. We bought two decks and play both decks with 8 people playing.
*Another recommendation is "Sleeping Queens" by Gamewright.
