I really like this game, but I got a damaged product. Doesn't prevent it from being played, but does take away from the aesthetic value. I'm reviewing it if it were not damaged.

Great fun for those who like dice, skill and chance. The box makes it handy to carry around - a good "front porch game" as they advertise. The box was not sturdy enough though, as it started to separate at the seams. It is holding together so far, though.

The game itself is great fun, but this particular presentation is awful. This is a faux-antique box with very cheap parts that fall apart pretty quickly. The dowel holding the tiles is bendy and spins freely: often you will accidentally flip down 3 or 4 tiles at once instead of just the one you wanted. The box is much deeper than others and can be difficult to see into to read the dice, especially when they're against the side. This also means it is not really possible for more than one or two people to watch. The chain tends to get caught up in the tiles when closing. The label on the inside of the lid is glued in and wrinkled. Overall it is a cheaply made game and there seem to be much better choices available for the same price.

Great game but quality leaves something to be desired. Wood box was very poorly put together with blotches of wood putty in corners. Numbers flimsy and difficult to move. I would recommend finding a different manufacturer of this great game as it is not unique to them.

Wow! Very addictive and super fun game! I brought this game to my friends house just to show them how cool the box was and we ended up playing for a few hours. We wanted to "shut the box" and played through until we all won a round. Very fun, very good quality and ideal for all occasions. I imagine I will buy this again as a gift.

A friend of mine introduced me to this game and I took note of the manufacturer so I could buy my own copy. I immediately ordered from Amazon and product looks DRASTICALLY different from his.

There is no textured outside, which looked great on his copy. In a couple of customer pictures and the product pictures you can see an example. What arrived on my doorstep was a plain smooth top that was scratched and ugly. I can somewhat forgive this due to price, but still annoying.

On the inside, the tiles themselves also have damage (dings and scratches). The dowel holding them in is cheap and shoddy. The divider between the dice rolling area and the tile area is wonky and not even all the way across.

I didn't expect much for the price, but I expected more especially since it was from the same manufacturer of a better version. Quality control is seriously lacking.

The number 2 sticks so sometimes when you flip down another number that tile moves as well, or vice versa. The felt is glued crooked inside the box, I had to fix it and the numbers. It serves its purpose, the game is fun. The quality is just not that good. I ordered one same box (Circa) last year off Amazon for my nephew and the quality was much better. I opted to keep it as it was a gift from my daughter and we have played it since Christmas non-stop.

We love this game! For children, you want their "work" to be "play." This name is great for re-enforcing addition, critical thinking, strategy, judgement, spacial reasoning, decisiveness, cooperation, sharing, & a host of others. And this is perfect for cognitive thinking & exercises for adults, whether they be young or old. Activities such as this would be great for those struggling with brain atrophy or simple slower mental processes which happens naturally as we age. My 10, 13, & 16 yr olds enjoy playing. I have a neurological disease that causes cognitive dysfunction, & it's perfect for me too. Gets the kids' face out of electronics & into playing games of yester-year. Some versions of this game are not in the "box" style, but you can play with 2 people. I wanted the old-fashion style, an actual "box", & we can take turns. Makes it feel more authentic for me. I highly recommend it!
