Frankly I'm a bit surprised by their love for this solar system trivia game, although I guess according to classical education models I shouldn't be, since the kids are in the Grammar/Fact Acquisition stage of the Trivium. Anyway, we will probably have to make some of our own cards because the kids are quickly mastering all of the fact cards that were included.
The game does require reading.
My children are 6 and 9 and really enjoy this game. The True/False questions make it easy to put younger children on a more level playing field because their chances are 50/50 to get it right. My son does really well regardless though. Today we played this game again and had a great discussion about why Pluto takes 248 Earth years to go around the sun because its orbit around the sun is so much larger than the Earth's.
Speaking of Pluto, that part of the game has to be tweaked because Pluto is no longer considered a planet, so anything referring to Pluto as a planet needs to be modified, but it's easy to do. You could even omit Pluto totally from the game play and still play the game just fine.
Two thumbs up from me because it's a hit with both kids and now we are all much more familiar with the planets in our solar system. Mom even needed a brush-up on her facts :) Because there are a limited number of cards you could eventually get to the point where you've memorized all the answers, however I can't really see remembering all those facts about the planets as a bad thing!

If they love science, space, the planets or need to learn about them its a great educator. Its a lot of fun so they don't even know they are learning. It is a great family game.Published on November 2, 2012 by educating parent

Just played this with my 6-year-old, who thought he knew everything about the planets. Well he still knew a lot more than I did, but we both learned new interesting facts. Read morePublished on December 27, 2010 by Joydee
