Cooperation is a difficult concept for kids, so the game is a bit dull to them at first, but it tends to get better the more you play.
The only thing wrong was how long it took my daughters to understand we were playing as a team.
Your mermaids start at the beginning and you take turns spinning a dial that will land on either a 1, 2, or a "witch" picture. if you land on either the 1 or 2 you converse as a team what mermaids to move. If you land on the witch, she moves forward a space. At the end my kids wanted to keep playing, which in my book, is a WIN!
Even if the witch makes you start again, you can easily catch up. Another plus is that the game moves fast so it does not drag....little ones get bored easily if a game drags.
We just purchased 7 board games for summer fun for the 4 kids. This one, so far, is the best!
Enter Mermaid Island. Similar concept - you're moving forward or falling back. BUT, you're in a race to save your island from the evil Sea Witch. Now THIS is a little more exciting! We really get into outrunning the witch, and let me tell you - we lose a lot! I thought this would be really easy, but despite my husband and I really upping our strategic influence, we still just don't always win. This is actually wonderful. It gives us the chance to show our daughter how to lose gracefully, and laugh it off. And laugh it off we do! We find it hilarious that none of use can often seem to outpace that witch. Luck is just on her side at our house! But we're glad - our daughter has shown an amazing improvement in sportsmanship all because of that lucky witch.
Also, when Amazon delivered our game, it was delivered missing a piece to the spinner. I wrote the company and was very quickly sent a replacement along with a warm handwritten note. I can't recommend this game (or company) highly enough.
I think most neurotypical 3 year olds should be able to play with it just fine, provided they aren't prone to putting the pieces in their mouth.
