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.
- "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?)
