I bought this game in a store. It seemed like a fun game with a good theme, but unfortunately falls flat on a few points. First of all, our board did not have the 3D hill. I don't know what happened, if it's missing a piece you add on or what. So it was confusing when the instructions talked about a hill. One of the mosters seemed like it was glued backwards to the platform it was on, so the Max character cannot "sit" on it.Some of the rules seem to be lacking. When you pick a wild rumpus card that says to move ahead to a spot it doesn't mention if you pick up your septor on the way or not. And if you're supposed to go past the wild things, do you pick one up on the way. And if multiple people get to move, how do you decide who moves first as it can matter when it comes to picking up the wild rumpus cards. Max's hand to hold the septor is pretty small and it's tough to get in there.
However, we do really like the main rule of the game where everyone roles their die at the same time and only those with the highest value get to move. More games should take this on, as it keeps all players involved in the game.
All in all, the idea of the game is ok, but the execution is poor.

My sister really loves "Where The Wild Things Are", and I wanted to give her something unique. So when I went looking for something, I found this board game. I figured why not? She does play board games quite a bit, and this game has to do with The Wild Things. It shipped on time, and the game perfect condition. The price wasn't bad either! From what I could tell (we haven't had a chance to play it yet) it's a cross between the game, "Candy Land", and "Monopoly". She loves it so far, even though we haven't played it. The players look just like the characters from the book, and the board is beautifully done! I would order from here again!

A game based on a beloved children’s book? Right up my alley. As soon as I saw it in the game lending library at our local toy store, decision made: “Let’s try this one!”

The kiddos and I hotfoot it home and open it up. The playing pieces are finely detailed and excellently rendered. They look like they have just stepped out of the pages of the book. Better even. We’re excited!

Set-up stymies me momentarily: the directions mention a plastic hill. There is no hill in the box. Maybe it got lost at some point in its lending-library-game past? I shrug. We’ll work around it. The directions also make me think that the scepters belong (until earned) in little holes near the hill. Seeing none, I opt to just pile them in the general vicinity. I later learn these quirks are not exclusive to our copy of the game. Production oversights? I picture the designers originally intending to include a plastic hill and scepter holes, then scrapping that idea (cost-prohibitive? logistically just too darn tricky?) and forgetting to notify the directions-writing department of a needed rewrite. At any rate: No biggie. It doesn’t hinder our gameplay.

The object of the game is to be the first to get your Max around the gameboard. The path takes you from his room, across the ocean, through the woods to where the Wild Things are. There you pick up a Wild Thing “buddy” (your gamepiece attaches to it so you can hitch a ride), continue on to another hill to pick up your scepter (by landing on just the right space). Then you race back to the beach where you [abandon] say good-bye to your buddy & sail back home.

The stand-out novelty of this game—beyond the book tie-in element (arguably incidental/peripheral...but, man, I’m still diggin’ those game pieces!

We just received this as a birthday present for my son as the purchaser thought it went along with the Gruffalo books that my son loves.
The instructions for the board were a little confusing as it sounded like there should be holes to put the scepters in so we hunted around for them but realised you just put them on the board.
My 4 and 6 year old love it. They love all board games so this is the one that they're playing right now.
I've never read the book, which I will borrow, so not sure how related it is.

My daugther really wanted this game, so we got it for Christmas.
She still likes it, but the way the game works sometimes you have to wait a long time until is your turn to play, so you have to have a lot of patience and be a little older.
Overall is a good game.
