I'm not sure if it is the beautiful game board, or the fun of getting better at remembering the True-False facts, but my kids (4, 7, 9) love this game and have played it every day since they got it for Christmas. The rating is based on their (esp. the 4 & 7 year olds) enthusiastic reception rather than my own thoughts about the game.

Frankly I'm a bit surprised by their love for this solar system trivia game, although I guess according to classical education models I shouldn't be, since the kids are in the Grammar/Fact Acquisition stage of the Trivium. Anyway, we will probably have to make some of our own cards because the kids are quickly mastering all of the fact cards that were included.

The game does require reading.

The aim of the game is to collect the full set solar system cards by answering a True/False question about the planet each time you pass a planet or the sun. My four year old loved this as he could easily answer the simpler questions and learnt something new from the more difficult ones. He also liked the idea of hopping from planet to planet.

My son is a space fan after we read many books about the solar system and milky way for him before sleep. He loves those space things and asked many questions. Well, he is 3.5 years old, and he won't be able to follow the rule to play the board game. However, we use different way to play with him with just imaging and picking for where his spacecraft driving to and then Q&A. He loves it and try to answer all questions and learn new knowledge. The reason not being 5 stars for this board game because of few answers on the Q&A cards aren't 100% accurcy as we learned from professional solar system book.

This is a really simple game, but is visually appealing and fun. You have to travel across our solar system and answer True/False questions about planets to collect cards. Once you have a card for each planet and the Sun then you win. There are worm holes, black holes, etc. that make you go to different spaces or trade cards with another player etc.

My children are 6 and 9 and really enjoy this game. The True/False questions make it easy to put younger children on a more level playing field because their chances are 50/50 to get it right. My son does really well regardless though. Today we played this game again and had a great discussion about why Pluto takes 248 Earth years to go around the sun because its orbit around the sun is so much larger than the Earth's.

Speaking of Pluto, that part of the game has to be tweaked because Pluto is no longer considered a planet, so anything referring to Pluto as a planet needs to be modified, but it's easy to do. You could even omit Pluto totally from the game play and still play the game just fine.

Two thumbs up from me because it's a hit with both kids and now we are all much more familiar with the planets in our solar system. Mom even needed a brush-up on her facts :) Because there are a limited number of cards you could eventually get to the point where you've memorized all the answers, however I can't really see remembering all those facts about the planets as a bad thing!

Our four year old is obsessed with planets. He knows all their names, most of their moons, and many facts about each planet. As a result, he is able to answer half of the trivia questions correctly. He was disappointed that the other dwarf planets weren't included. If they have Pluto, they should have the others as well. The game is pretty straight forward, land on a planet and answer a True/False question about the planet. If you get it right, you get to keep the card. Collect cards from all the planets to win. This game isn't my favorite (I think it's a little boring), but he loves it. It's beautiful and educational. (Random comment: I'm not a fan of the spinner, it seems a little cheap.) Overall, if you are buying this game for someone who loves all things related to planets, DEFINITELY buy it. If you just want to play a fun game with your child, you might want to choose something else. It's a little pricey for the fun value. If you want an educational game, I recommend the scrambled states of america game.
