This game was purchased for my 6 year old daughter about a year ago. While it was a little advanced for her at that time, she has developed an interest in Ancient Egypt since and we pulled out the game. Last night we sat in a circle (daughter, me and her dad) and played this trivia game. We haven't found many trivia games that are fun for both adults and kids, but this one fits the bill. There are two sections of questions (hard and easy -- 3 in each section) and the object of the game is to get the highest number of cards -- if you answer a question correctly, you keep the card. A roll of the dice tells you which question to ask. We had a ball, and we are looking forward to trying some of the other Professor Noggin games. I really like that it not only gave my daughter information about the time she was interested in (Ancient Egypt) but also introduced her to Rome, Greece, Mesopotamia, China and Japan. The only thing that stops this game from getting a 5 star rating from me is that the questions get memorized pretty quickly, and at that point the game is not really interesting any more. When we have memorized all of the questions, I am going to donate the game to my daughter's elementary school.

It is an easy way to review or learn about Ancient Civilizations. The game is a deck of cards and one dice. There is nothing to set up just take the cards out of the box and your done. If we don't have alot of time, I pick a small number like 6 and say who ever gets six cards first win. If you are going on a trip, these games are small and easy to play anywhere. The other great thing about this game is if you do lose a card the game is not ruined. You could even play it in a car.

This isn't a game you'd whip out for the sheer fun of it on family night, but my family agrees that it sure is a better way to introduce kids to ancient civilizations that the many mind-numbing texts for children out there. If yours is like ours, they'll know very little the first time you play, but by the third time, they'll sound oh-so-smart knowing Euclid is the father of geometry and that Roman slaves could earn their freedom.

This isn't deep understanding, but it's a fairly painless and oft times rather enjoyable way to learn some facts that further instruction can build upon later on down the educational road. That said, if your child hasn't internalized the necessity of learning anything about ancient civilizations, this game isn't fun enough to overcome that. This game works only with kids who are not kicking and screaming, but rather realize the alternative introduction to these things would be far less interactive and far more dull.

For the first game or two, my advice for starting with kids who don't yet have a burning curiosity about ancient civilizations is to begin playing with only half the deck. That way, you'll work around again to the cards you've already "lost" on (which go to the bottom of the pile), which will build confidence (and fun) when your child answers them correctly on the second or third pass.

Fun for many ages! My 6, 8, 10, and 12 year olds all love playing it with my husband and me. Definitely a great way to learn. The Only disadvantage (if you can call it that) is that after 5+ times of playing, we've learned so much that many of our young children "graduated" to the hard level, and the parents had to have the difficulty increased by not getting the multiple choices or having the questions reworded. But since enjoyable learning was my goal, I'm thrilled!

This game is a pretty good review of ancient civilizations. It would be very good for students even those who may be older. It could serve as a refresher if you need one. For kids 7-13 it is ideal. I plan on using it in my classroom for a good review toward the end of the year once we have went over several of the ancient civ. empires. I would recommend unless you already have a lot of ancient history knowledge.

We love the Professor Noggin card games. Older kids/adults can play using the harder questions, and younger kids can use the easy questions, so kids have a chance to beat the adults. It is a fun way to reinforce what we've learned in school...or it gives us information about a topic we didn't cover. We've brought this game on trips, and played with extended family and with friends, and it's always a big hit with everyone!

Great for fact review! We homeschool and bought this to use for fact review as we go through our Ancient Civilizations unit. It's a good break from lessons and reading and it gives me an idea of what topics the kids need more information on.

The author of the cards treating ancient Rome and Greece is totally confused by modern political geography and let current national borders affect his perception of ancient ones. Examples:
- "What ancient civilization began on the island of Crete? Answer: Greek" (This is nonsense. No historian believes that the Greeks originated from Crete.)
- Another question is prefaced by this statement: "The Minoan civilization was the first great civilization of Greece." (Utterly insane. The Minoans were not Greek and did not speak Greek. Obviously, modern borders are hindering the author's understanding of ancient realities.)
- "Which of the following was not an ancient Greek city: Delphi, Knossos, Neapolis, or Sparta? Answer: Neapolis; it was a Roman city." (Completely wrong - Neapolis certainly became a Roman city but, so did all the other cities mentioned. Knossos would be the best answer since it was abandoned about the time that Greeks were taking over Crete.)
- "The Greek empire began as a group of strong cities that often fought against each other. True or False. (Well, neither, since there has never been an entity known as the Greek empire. Did the author mean the Delian League which is often called the Athenian Empire?)
