Tip: Buy dry-erase markers, as the ones in the box are dried out and you will want to play right away! Eraser works lovely.
We played this for the first time tonight. As it is only for 2 players, for the first few times, we played my daughter (10) and her friend (11) as a team against me. If I could give this 6 stars, I would.
The game is very similar to battleship. There are 2 boards for each person, a large one and a small one. The large board is full of rows lettered A- ?. The columns are numbered 1-10. There are 9 different symbols (hearts, diamonds, circles), with 9 different colors (white, pink, yellow etc). etc) randomly placed throughout the board (think like random placement with columns and rows like a bingo card).
Example: Choose a spot, and you keep it a secret. Each spot consists of 4 attributes (1. Row 2. Column 3. Color 4. Symbol)
Team Kids - (my daughter's team) choose 1 spot, B 15 which happens to be a silver circle.
Team Mom - (me) chooses Q 18 which is a pink moon.
Each team takes turns trying to guess the other team's secret.
Team Kids asks Team Mom: Asks for a clue saying: C8 (which happens to be a blue sun). I have to look then at each of my attributes of my secret. Since I chose Q 18 a pink moon, none of the attributes match (4 attributes being row, column, color or symbol).
Team Mom asks Team Kids: Asks for a clue for M7 (which is a silver sun). Team kids looks at their secret (which was B 15 silver circles). Row M is a no, 7 for column is a no, the color silver is a yes, and the symbol sun is a no. So for the clue they would have to say yes.
If 1-3 of the attributes is correct, the team has to say yes to the clue, meaning that clue is a "hit." So now, Team Mom knows, hmm it is either in Row M, Column 7, the color silver or it is a sun. So I can use my cards to make notes with the dry erase board.
What I loved:
1. Getting a hit "no" on a clue is not a bad thing and in many cases is super, because you can eliminate things. With my SUPER competitive daughter, there is no "oh I am losing" or anything, it was all a matter of trying to figure it out. Since there is no score, and no update and how anyone is doing, since a NO on a clue can give just as much information as a YES, everyone felt on the same playing field.
2. I also LOVED that they played together first couple of matches. They were both able to go to the corner of the room and have their little "meetings" and they totally fed off of one another's ideas on how to eliminate certain criteria. They also figured out between each other how to go for 1 attribute (getting lots of No's) then going from there to figure out another attribute. I would hear one say Oh yeah that's a great idea! And another say Oh yeah I didn't think of that! So it really got them buzzing and pro-active thinking. This aspect of thinking may be moot with older kids, but hey, what team of teenagers wouldn't wanna be against team mom and dad and win?
The games took us about 20-30 mins each, but I think it was because they were at the younger end of the spectrum, and it was all so new to us. Like I said, when you buy this, get some dry-erase markers so you are ready to go. I could see is breaking this game out at least 2 times a week as a family, just because I know it will not have meltdowns (from my I hate losing child), and well, it was actually fun for me too!
I really enjoyed it. It is like mastermind (my favorite game) but multiplied by 10. If you have high schoolers that like games and are competitive, this is fantastic. Also great for adults. Not ideal for younger kids.
In playing the game, you have to keep careful track of what guesses you and your opponent(s) have already made (the game includes the ability to do that). The better you are at keeping track, the better you are at guessing your opponent's chosen square. It takes a bit of thinking and we is good for socializing but can even be played while watching TV, which we occasionally do. However, if you lose too often, it can get frustrating!!
All-in-all, it's a great game for pre-teens and adults. (My teenagers found it uninteresting).
