I am a fourth grade teacher. Teaching students how to use context clues to enhance reading comprehension has always been a challenge. This game is fun, a good price, and the students really enjoy it. It is set up for four students. I think I will purchase one more so at least eight students can enjoy it at a time. This is a good activity for students to do when they have completed their work and the teacher still needs to work with the rest of the class. Right now, I am not sure about the durability of the game because I haven't had it for very long.

Our kids range in age from 5-10 and they are all able to play this. Our 5 year can read so that is probably why they are all able to play this together. Otherwise, I think the lowest age range would be 7. We like this game mainly because it focuses on a weak area for 2 of our boys - language & reading comprehension. One of our children has autism and struggles with testing. This game mimics standardized testing which was a big plus for me. Our kids all play this like a fun game while I treat it like homework in disguise. Clever.

When looking at games to purchase, we prefer ones that stimulate the brain & are preferably fun...not just mindless play. After playing this with my 4-11 years old I think this is a winner! At first I was a little concerned on the "fun" factor, the educational elements are obvious from the beginning, but it was not until we got the first "hint" that I saw how fun it is! I am the parent and on the first hint, I was not successful in answering, but my 10 year old was! The point of the game is to understand words in context using the provided sentence (the word to be understood is in bold) and there are three choices. This is good for most children to improve their word usage and understanding. Then in addition to that, there are the hints cards...they works your thinking skills also! And to be noted....the game box and presentation (there is a mini-brief case you hide your hints in)is very well done. Much nicer than expected for the price paid.

We bought this for Christmas and I'm very impressed with the quality of the game for the price, particularly the briefcase that everything is stored in, which is small and sturdy. I played it with my almost 5-year-old and my 6 year old. You have a mystery item listed on a clue card and you need to answer question cards to earn hints that will help you guess your mystery item. The question cards each contained a sentence using a vocabulary word that a small child would normally be unfamiliar with (ie: elated, skirmish, omnipotent, etc.) in context, and then asked what that word meant in the sentence, with 3 multiple choice answers. Once you have chosen your answer, you look up to see if you are correct in the answer booklet that is provided with the game. The answers are not on the back of the cards...so if you lose that answer sheet, the kids will have to rely on an adult to provide the correct answer. Each time you answer 3 questions correctly, you get to hear a "clue" from your clue card and and try to guess your mystery object based on the clues. There are three clues on each clue card. My kids really liked answering the question cards and earning clues, and I was shocked at how well a four-year-old can define a word based on how it is used in a sentence. I knocked off a star because the player that goes first (the youngest) always won...he never got any questions wrong so always received his clues before the other children and therefore always won...which was a bummer for the other kids playing. Still, they had a good time and were exposed to a lot of vocabulary words. They stopped to think about what unfamiliar words meant given the context of a sentence. Very educational and surprisingly fun.

A games where students pretend they are detectives to solve a clue. The students must read their clues and correct mistakes. A bit of fun while students learn also.

I bought this game for my ten year old daughter. I thought it would be great to help her with reading comprehension. There are way too many steps to the game to make it fun. When kids play they want to just go not think what do I have to do now. Description states that with the word cards you can "Figure out what words mean by clues in the text around them" and this helps kids with test taking and reading comprehension. These cards are good to teach vocabulary words but are so easy to figure out. Real life multiple choice tests and reading don't make it so easy to figure out a vocabulary word by the text around it. This game sounds way more exciting than it actually is.

The game was a bit challenging to figure out how to play, but once we got it, we loved it!

It can be a bit slow, but the questions are fabulous for reviewing higher level thinking (inferencing, context clues, etc). It is a great practice for the upcoming standardized tests.

I purchased this game for my 8 year old son. If I had more children perhaps this would have been better enjoyed. My husband, son, and I played this once. Game play was around 5 mins. I ended up selling it at a garage sale. It would be better suited to a larger group or a center for school. But all in all it was a nice game.
