As far the game itself, it is great. I loved it. My 8 year old son loves it. It is simple and easy to play, and teaches not only programming concepts, but strategy. You have to pick the card that works best for where you are on the board. The rules are few, and can easily be adapted to different game play styles if your wanted. My family loves board games and table top games already, and this was a great addition to the collection. If you want a game that you can learn to play in less than 5 minutes, that is also really fun, and also allows you to learn something useful as well, then I highly recommend you pick this up. You are not going to learn everything there is about programming with this, but you are not supposed to. It gives a great introduction to programming logic and concepts, and how things are handled in a program, and gives a great foundation to continue building on.
Our third graders did not do so well with CodingFarmers, because, and this is my personal belief after hours of observation, they were having problems juggling several high-order concepts at the same time. For instance, they were having trouble analyzing the situation when they had two conditional statements cards to choose from, and deciding what would be best for them to do in the long run. I did not try it, but I think if I were to remove the high-order cards cards when I introduce the game to them, and gradually adding them to the mix, they would do much better.
Our fourth graders did much better, and I believe that if they would have the chance to play the game 2-3 times, they would enjoy it and understand it even better.
However, in my humble opinion, the game shows its strength with 5th grade+ students. It took our 5th graders 15 min to master the objective of the game, the reason why they were playing the game, AND make the connections between CodingFarmers and working on the computer on websites like code.org. I believe that the game can be a great addition in any upper elementary, middle school, or high school classroom. It allows students to explore basic programming concepts, and learn several Java commands before they even work on the computer. Coding Farmers does that, while cutting screen time and fostering socialization, which is pretty impressive.
Kids learn best, while having fun.
The one thing that stands out about it is that as kids get good with the basics of the game, they can 'graduate' to play with just the java cards, and this is what makes them understand the basics a little more!
A very well designed board game!
