Fun Game for Kids 10-14
on November 23, 2013
You can tell by looking at this game it is geared toward kids between the ages of 10-14. Why adults are trying to play it and are concluding it's a "drinking game" is beyond me. Maybe it's because the Klondike commercials from the 80's and 90's are seared into their memories. One person commented that there is no tie in to Klondike bars at all, but since the point of the game is to collect all 6 Klondike bars in order to win, that's just not true.
As others have noted, this is not a board game, but a creativity game. You use different creative vehicles to solve challenges. If you don't like games where you have to be creative like Pictionary, Charades, etc. then you probably won't like this game.
Anyway, I turned this over to some very silly girls ranging in ages from 10-14. They liked it a lot actually. Here are some comments I recorded:
-You need to know how to read and write
-Could be fun for ages 7 and up
-Very easy to learn, you can even learn as you play
-Everyone gets to be the judge, and there is the concept of stealing another persons Klondike bar. (seems realistic)
-There are two die, one tells what flavor Klondike bar you play for, the other tells what kind of challenge to do (trivia, theatrical, creativity)
-Comes with small whiteboards and markers, which are neat and work well
Suggestion: Should come with a coupon towards Klondike bars because after you are done playing you will want to eat one.
Summary: This could be a great Christmas gift game if you have the right audience, which I believe to be pre-teen to early-teen. There is nothing off color about the challenges that should worry you about a young audience playing this game.
