There is a 60 second timer so you can help level the playing field by varying the amount of time older players have to read the card and give the answer. We give our son 45 seconds and my husband and I get 15 seconds. We all finish well ahead of the timer, but we find it easier to use the main intervals marked on the timer. You could use different intervals if you desired.
Durability: We buy a lot of board games and this one has held up better than the others. The cards are thick so they are not easily bent. Also each set of cards has a zip bag so they stay stacked and sorted when you put them away.
They do get excited when their state (Michigan) is one of the answers and they do like finding ones they have visited.
Like another reviewer stated, the color matching of the state shapes and their colors on the board doesn't make it much of a challenge, after the 2nd round the 6 year old had already picked up on this and was coaching the 4 year old to look for a "blue state". We set the time no more that 30 seconds for both kids and they have been able to get all questions, except for naming multiple states that start with a particular letter, within that time frame.
I was disappointed that the timer broke after the first game and because it was such a highlight for the kids , the fun factor is gone.
