Three years later I am somewhat shocked to report that my almost 8 year old, going into 2nd grade, STILL wants to play this game! And you know what....I STILL actually like playing it with him! It IS a simple game, but somehow not really boring for us. We play a few rounds, and that's enough, but it still gets more play than all of the other small games and card games that we have. He is pretty much past the Busytown cartoons(although will watch with his 2 year old brother), but still likes the books and games. Go figure. Somehow it is still relevant, even though skill wise he is beyond it. He continues to struggle with math, so I think this game makes him feel good, and it is easy. I try to push harder "math" games on him, and I think he is on to me. He can't be fooled....he knows I'm trying to "teach" him something! In this game, there are "plus" cards that when drawn need to be added to whatever you pick next, and sometimes we modify this concept by picking, adding and subtracting two and three cards at a time on each turn. Another challenge we have tried is to add the number values on ALL your card when the came is done to determine the winner, instead of just who has the most cards. I think there are plenty of other variations one could make up too. We still love the characters, and we all have our favorites, which somehow feels like a bonus when you draw them(for me, getting Lowly Worm in his apple car makes me happy)! My toddler is too young to play this game, but loves to take out the cards, spread them out, study them, make them into piles, etc. Before long however he will be playing it, and at that point, this is a game that he can play with his brother who is 5 years older, without there being an age advantage. One reviewer mentioned this lack of strategy as a "con," but for us, finding a game that is fun and fair is a definite "pro!"
The only thing that I would like to point out - there is no "minus" card. So all math calculations are additions. The game goes by very fast - mainly you are doing comparison of who got which number. Only if you draw "plus" card then you have to stop and do the math and see what is the result. There are only 45 cards so the two or three players can have a very quick game. Sometimes one (or two) card is left and we explained to him that you just leave that card unused because the game ends when you don't have enough cards for everyone to make the draw.
The cards are great quality - shiny glossy and strong to be handled over and over. Easy to mix up on the table, and easy to put back in the box. Images are colorful and represent the number - number of animals in various vehicles. Hot dog for One is silly. Spilled truck of bunch of watermelons for zero - nothing is left in the truck, get it?
Absolutely definitely worth the price!
Cards are oversized and good quality
PIctures are fun
Kids like it
Teaches counting and basic addition
Ties into Richard Scarry books which my kids love and I recommend
Winning/losing has nothing to do with ability, purely based on luck of the draw, which my advanced 6 year old daughter is OK with but I can tell she wishes there was some skill involved to improve her chances over her little brother. WITH THAT SAID... that aspect also levels the playing field between kids of different ages and abilities. So it's an aspect that could be a plus or a minus.
For the price of about $5, I find it was well worth it.
