No reading required and the rules are simple. But winning is not guaranteed for older/wiser parents. There is enough chance involved to make the game exciting and unpredictable. You move chickens up levels to reach the rooster. Occasionally a player will launch an egg from the rooster at the apex with the goal of knocking over another player's chicken(s) so they have to start at the bottom again. The fun part - the ball is not quite round so you're never quite sure where it will go! We played a couple of games the day after Christmas and my 4-yr-old beat me fair and square and we laughed all the way through the game. This is not typical for him - he gets frustrated easily with some other games, but this one was so goofy that we both just laughed about our mishaps.
That said, this is not an "educational" game, but, well, it's a game, so I don't mind.
We have about 12 games at home for 5 to 6-yr-old group and this is our favorite for having fun. Highly recommended.
What's really neat is that anyone can win - there is a very nice 'chance' factor in the form of the egg - eggs don't roll straight due to their shape so there's no guarantee your egg will roll where you want it to. As often as not, we hit our own hens and not just our opponents.
The game takes about 8 minutes to play out - a bit faster with 2 people and a bit longer with four people. Of course, it's more fun with 4 people since there are more hens to chuck the egg at.
My 6 year old loves it - she even loves saying the name. When we aren't playing it, she practices chucking the egg on waiting pieces.
I like the 3D feel to this and the way it is laid out. An easy to play game and fun for everyone.
I especially like this game for younger children since many other games are potentially too complicated to teach them, but this is about as easy as it comes. They also think the idea is very funny. There are some elements of strategy and planning that this game helps to teach, but these are relatively minimal. However, it is a great game for working on frustration tolerance and/or sportsmanship issues since getting your chicken knocked down can really upset some kids. This game is also great for kids who enjoy being creative since I have had several make up new rules and ways to play this game.
My biggest complaints for this game is the lack of variety in the rooster positioning and egg options. The rooster cannot hit the chickens that manage to get to the level directly below it. This means that if any player gets to that level (there are 2 spaces there), there is nothing any other player can (fairly) do to get them out and it is therefore only a matter of time before that player rolls the needed hat option and wins. I also think that rather than a chute you push the egg in, some sort of arm that could actually "chuck" the eggs would be pretty neat.
Still, it's a fun game that many of the kids I work with keep asking to play, so they definitely did something right!
Game play is very brief, and the potential for losing the egg is pretty high, but it's fun and simple for young children. They must aim the egg, which is of positive learning value, and they must use strategy to place their chickens where they are less likely to be hit, which teaches planning and strategy.
Where this product looses me is in that the base is very warped, and will not sit flat. As this is essential to keeping it steady while you launch poultry projectiles, one would think that they would have some quality control there, but it seems they do not. My set may simply have been defective, however.
