I thought this game looked interesting and wondered if it would work with the Phonics based program that I use (which includes 70 phonograms, many of which are multi-letter). Upon opening the box, I found it to be a very nicely made, sturdy, tri-fold board, with a good storage container for the cards, although the box seems a little too big for the product. You don't even have to punch out any of the letter tiles and risk ripping them! I loved that the category cards are color coded with one side being more challenging than the other. Both people could play at the same level, or you could level the playing field a bit by having the older person play from the orange side while the younger read from the blue side. Or you can simply let the game grow with their needs and provide many opportunities for play over the course of the child's education. The instructions are written in a way that there are teams, which works because each team has the opportunity to brainstorm together and come to a conclusion (which other skills come into play if they are strategic in knowing what letters they really need/or are close to getting in a round). However, we played one on one and it worked just as well. For the first round, I played it with a 10 year old and noticed that it was going to take a while to get to a winner (capturing 8 letter tiles). I mentioned that maybe we should just play until one of us captured 4 letter tiles and he said, "No, I want to go to 8! This is fun!" KUDOS to Educational Insights when a child is begging to continue! SUGGESTION- in between step #2 & 3, I would recommend that you have the children write down their chosen word (paper/marker board, etc) before they move the letter tiles on the board, instead of guessing while moving the tiles to prevent as many mistakes. It helps reinforce spelling. I also watched a 9 & 10 year old play and they loved it!
